Chimera of Arezzo

The "Chimera of Arezzo": an Etruscan Bronze

In Greek mythology, the Chimera was a monster who had the head of a lion, the body of a goat and the tail of a snake. In other versions, she had three heads: a lion's one, a goat's one, and a snake for a tail. Other times she had a middle head, body, and hind legs of a lion, a right head and right hoof of a goat or ram, a left head, left hand, and wings of a dragon, and a snake for a tail. She was able to emit fire from his mouth and he was killed by Bellerophon. Despite being presented as a female monster, she was almost always presented with the head of the male lion with mane.
