Fictitious and Symbolic Creatures in Art

By John Vinycomb

Other Chimerical Creatures and Heraldic Beasts- Musimon, Tityrus


A fictitious animal mentioned by Guillim and others. It nearly 
resembles a goat, with the head and horns of a ram, but has besides the horns of that beast, a pair of goat's horns. It is also mentioned in Guillim's "Display," where it is said to be a bigenerous beast, of unkindly procreation, engendered between a goat and a ram, like the Tityrus, the offspring of a sheep and goat, as noted by Upton.
