Pegasus the Pterippus Picture

Just found out wigged horses are supposed to be called "Pterippus" and that Pegasus was just the most famous winged horse so people normally call all winged horses Pegasus. Pterippus sounds hard to pronounce. I think the P is silent so its pronounced Terippus.

From wikipedia - "Pegasus
is one of the best known creatures in Greek mythology. He is a winged divine stallion usually depicted as pure white in color. He was sired by Poseidon in his role as horse-god, and foaled by the Gorgon Medusa. He was born at a single birthing when his mother was decapitated by Perseus. Greco-Roman poets write about his ascent to heaven after his birth and his obeisance to Zeus, king of the gods, who instructed him to bring lightning and thunder from Olympus. Friend of the Muses, Pegasus is the creator of Hippocrene, the fountain on Mt. Helicon. He was captured by the Greek hero Bellerophon near the fountain Peirene with the help of Athena and Poseidon. Pegasus allows the hero to ride him to defeat a monster, the Chimera, before realizing many other exploits. His rider, however, falls off his back trying to reach Mount Olympus. Zeus transformed him into the constellation and placed him up in the sky."
