A mural depicting Bellerophon on Pegasus attacking the Chimera

The Chimera was a fire-breathing creature in Greek mythology, an amalgamation of a goat, lion, and a snake. It was slain by the hero Bellerophon with the aid of Pegasos.

Influence

During the 5th century BCE, a member of the The Silver Vein branch of the Cult of Kosmos took up the mythical name, calling herself The Chimera.[1]

Another member of the Cult, Asterion of the Gods of the Aegean Sea, was the captain of the trireme, the Astraios, whose sails and finery of which had been emblazoned with the Chimera's likeness.[1]

Around 422 BCE, an Achaian engineer designed and developed a naval weapon which he named after the monster as Chimera's Breath, for like the creature, the weapon spewed fire.[2]
