Dear Kartson, Pegasus has a fabulous biography, without doubts it deserves this beautiful photo. The one who furrows the skies this one close to the Greek Gods and he is a messenger of good news for the mortal ones. You have an admirable knowledge, sum up the history of the life of your ground across a photo. Wonderful, I congratulate you, very beautiful gallery. Big greeting from Uruguay, Teresa (I am sorry for my bad english)

Flying horse

Pegasus was named thus, because he was born near the springs of the Ocean. He sprang up from the body of his mother Medusa together with Chrysaora, when Perseus had cut her head off, without having been turned into a stone, as he was only seeing her image, looking her reflection through his shield. As soon as Pegasus came out of Medusa’s body he was ridden by Perseus, who wanted to reach Ethiopia in order to save the beautiful Andromeda (the daughter of Cepheus and Cassiopeia) from the dragon’s teeth. Afterwards Perseus set Pegasus free and he settled on mountain Olympus, where according to Hesiod he carried the thunderbolts from Hephaestus workshop to Zeus. Later goddess Athena had offered him to the Muses and since then Pegasus had been living together with them on mount Helicon. Because Pegasus was related to the Muses and Apollo, he was considered as a symbol of poetic inspiration. Pegasus the horse of thunder, having been portrayed to come out of the clouds, when he beat the soil with his hooves water was spouting. Thus the spring of Peirini was created in Acrocorinth and those of Aganippi and Ippokrini in Helicon. Vellerofontis tamed Pegasus when he was drinking water in Peirini fountain with the help of Athena. Vellerofontis riding Pegasus had killed the Chimera. Following the adventures of Vellerofonti the Pegasus crossed the skies and came back to Olympus. Pegasus, the mythical winged horse, was the main type of the Corintian coins, which which were called «colts».

Εις Ιταλικήν παραλίαν

Ο Κήμος Μενεδώρου, Ιταλιώτης νέος, τον βίον του περνά μέσα στες διασκεδάσεις· ως συνειθίζουν τούτοι οι απ' την Μεγάλη Ελλάδα μες στα πολλά τα πλούτη αναθρεμένοι νέοι.

Μα σήμερα είναι λίαν, παρά το φυσικό του, σύννους και κατηφής. Κοντά στην παραλίαν, με άκραν μελαγχολίαν βλέπει που εκφορτώνουν τα πλοία με την λείαν εκ της Πελοποννήσου.

Λάφυρα ελληνικά· η λεία της Κορίνθου.

Α σήμερα βεβαίως δεν είναι θεμιτόν, δεν είναι δυνατόν ο Ιταλιώτης νέος νάχει για διασκεδάσεις καμιάν επιθυμίαν.

Έτσι πολύ ατένισα --

Την εμορφιά έτσι πολύ ατένισα, που πλήρης είναι αυτής η όρασίς μου.

Γραμμές του σώματος. Κόκκινα χείλη. Μέλη ηδονικά. Μαλλιά σαν από αγάλματα ελληνικά παρμένα• πάντα έμορφα, κι αχτένιστα σαν είναι, και πέφτουν, λίγο, επάνω στ' άσπρα μέτωπα. Πρόσωπα της αγάπης, όπως τάθελεν η ποίησίς μου.... μες στες νύχτες της νεότητός μου, μέσα στες νύχτες μου, κρυφά, συναντημένα....

Κωνσταντίνος Π. Καβάφης (1917)
