A centaur (Ancient Greek: κένταυρος, kéntauros, Latin: centaurus), or occasionally hippocentaur, is a creature from Greek mythology with the upper body of a human and the lower body and legs of a horse.Centaurs are thought of in many Greek myths as being as wild as untamed horses, and were said to have inhabited the region of Magnesia and Mount Pelion in Thessaly, the Foloi oak forest in Elis, and the Malean peninsula in southern Laconia. Centaurs are subsequently featured in Roman mythology, and were familiar figures in the medieval bestiary. They remain a staple of modern fantastic literature. Wikipedia
Centaurus (Graece Κένταυρος) in mythologia Graeca est unus ex gente monstruosa et biformis: nam ei corpus equi sive quattuor pedibus sive duobus posterioribus praeditum, cum pectore et duobus bracchiis et capite hominis coniunctum est. Horum fabula ex nescientibus etiam tum artem equitandi hominibus nata videtur, quibus equites primum visi terrori fuerunt.Vicipaedia
Οἱ Κένταυροι ἦσαν διφυῆ μυθικὰ ὄντα, ἔχοντα ὄψιν κατὰ τὸ ἥμισυ ἀνδρός καὶ σῶμα καὶ πόδας ἵππου. Ἔζων εἰς τὰ δάση τῆς Θεσσαλικῆς Μαγνησίας καὶ ἦσαν δαίμονες τῆς φύσεως καὶ μάλιστα τῶν δασῶν, ἅ ἦσαν πλήρη ἀγρίων θηρίων, ἅτινα ἐφόβουν τοὺς ἀνθρώπους. Ἦσαν υἱοὶ τοῦ Κενταύρου, υἱοῦ Ἰξίωνος, βασιλέως Λαπιθῶν, καὶ τῆς Νεφέλης, ᾤκουν εἰς σπήλαια καὶ ἐτρέφοντο ἀγρίοις θηρίοις. Περίφημος ἦν ἡ τῶν Κενταύρων μάχη, ἡ Κενταυρομαχία, καθ’ ἥν ἐμάχοντο οἱ Κένταυροι ἐπὶ τοὺς Λαπίθας, τοὺς γείτονας αὐτῶν. Theodoros Tomaras
