In Greek mythology, Pegasus (Πήγασος, Pégasos) was a winged horse sired by Poseidon, in his role as horse-god, and foaled by the Gorgon Medusa. He was the brother of Chrysaor, born at a single birthing. By extension, the term Pegasus is often used to refer to any winged horse.

Pegasus represented divine inspiration as well as god-like apotheosis. Anyone who rode him could become a great poet. Pegasus's crescent-moon-shaped hoof stamped the ground and dug the Hippocrene (Horse-Well), a spring of poetic inspiration on Mount Helicon, the home of the Muses. This was another kind of immortality: the rider of Pegasus could figuratively "fly through the air to reach the heavens." Art titled "Still Your Golden Boy" by DirtySunshine

Pegasus was the mount of the hero Bellerophon. Together they destroyed the Chimera. Later Bellerophon, thinking that he was as great as the gods, rode up to Olympus. Zeus sent a gadfly to sting Pegasus who fell back to earth. Bellerophon landed in a thorn bush which left him blind and crippled for the rest of his life, which he spent as a hermit, whilst Zeus used Pegasus as a pack animal to carry his thunderbolts.
