Pegasos on Corinthian stater
The tale of the famous winged horse of antiquity starts exactly where the main story of the abominable Medusa ends - from the blood in the beheaded body of the monster sprung Pegasos, the fruit of an illicit affair between Medusa and Poseidon. He is most noted as the fateful horse accompanying the hero Bellerophon, in feates like in the slaying of another terrible monster, the fire-breathing Chimaira. But he throws off and abandons his master as he attempts to soar up Mt. Olympos and join the gods - "the bitter end", according to ancient writer Pindar, that awaits one who seeks "more than is right". Pegasos appears relatively frequently on Greek issues, the most notable of which are the famous Corinthian staters, where he is paired with Athena on the other side.
