Dragons

The dragon is a legendary creature of which some interpretation or depiction appears in almost every culture worldwide. However the physical description and supposed abilities of the creature vary immensely.

The two most familiar interpretations of dragons are either derived from various European folk traditions, or from the Chinese dragon (lóng,龍,龙). The word "dragon" derives from Greek δράκων (drakōn), "a serpent of huge size, a python, a dragon" and that from δρακεῖν (drakein) infinitive active of the verb δέρκομα (derkomai) "I see clearly".
