I guess you would have to say Pegasus Unicorn with the wings and all.
Turns out that Pliny depicted the body of a horse, head of a deer, feet of an elephant the tail of a lion, with a black tapered horn projecting a length of two cubits for the Unicorn in his "Natural History" written about year 30. Those in the middle ages took this work to be the truth about life in the natural world.
Looks as though he might have had many flights of fancy as well as bad luck since he was buried in Pompeii by Vesuvius.
