Archaeological Museum of Delphi:

White-ground kylix, found in a tomb at Delphi. Work of an anonymous athenian vase-painter. On white ground, Apollo is depicted crowned with a wreath of myrtle leaves sitting on a stool with legs in the form of  lion paws. He is dressed in a white peplos and he is draped within a red himation. With his left hand he is plucking the the chords of his lyre, while with his right hand he is offering a wine libation from a navel-phiale. The black bird accompanying him is probably a crow, a reference to his mythical love for Aigle-Koroni, the daughter of king Phlegyas. (480-470 B.C)

THE MANTICORE IS A BRIGHT RED GIANT LION WITH THE TAIL OF A FUCKING SCORPION AND THE HEAD OF A MAN. IT HAS THREE MOTHERFUCKING ROWS OF TEETH, AND A COMPLETELY FUCKING INSANE GRIN. IT’S LIKE A CROSS BETWEEN A CRAZY POISONOUS SCORPION LION MONSTER AND THE JOKER. IT’S THE STUFF OF MOTHERFUCKING NIGHTMARES, AND ALSO IT EATS PEOPLE. AND LAUGHS WHILE IT EATS PEOPLE. IT’S FUCKING HORRIFIC.

ALSO IT CAN JUMP REALLY FUCKING FAR. IT CAN JUMP OVER RIVERS AND ALSO WALLS, SO THERE’S NOWHERE YOU CAN EVER BE SAFE FROM THE FUCKING NIGHTMARE LION SCORPION DEMON MAN THING. BE VERY FUCKING AFRAID.
