Pegasus, often spelled as "Pegasos," is a mythical creature from Greek mythology. It is a winged horse that is famous for its association with heroes and stories from ancient Greece. Pegasus is typically depicted as a magnificent white horse with wings, allowing it to fly. Pegasus has its origins in the myth of the Gorgon Medusa. According to the myth, Pegasus was born from the blood of Medusa after she was slain by the hero Perseus. Pegasus emerged from her neck after it was severed by Perseus' sword.
One of the most famous stories involving Pegasus is its connection to the hero Bellerophon. With the help of the goddess Athena, Bellerophon tamed Pegasus and used the winged horse to defeat the fearsome monster Chimera. Pegasus also played a role in various other mythological tales and adventures.
