Pegasus was the winged-horse that sprang from the blood of Medusa when Perseus cut her head off. He served as Perseus’ steed and helped the hero defeat the sea-monster Cetus to save Princess Andromeda and the country of Aethiopia.
Athena took Pegasus to Mount Helicon, the mountain of the muses, where with a single kick of his hoof started the flowing of the famous spring of Hippocrene, said to be the source of all poetic inspiration.
