Pegasus: Its name derives from the Phoenician pag sus, the bridled horse. In later tradition, Pegasus became the symbolic mount of poets and artists because of Greek legend, which said that with a stamp of his hoof, he caused the flow of Hippocrene, the fountain of the Muses, on Mount Helicon. Thus, Pegasus became the symbol of poetic inspiration and the emblem of creative arts.  by E. and J. Lehner (from Classic Horse Stories compiled by Christina Rossetti Darling and Blue Lantern Studio)
