Arion \Arion\, prop. n.
In Greek legend, a fabulous horse, the offspring of Poseidon
by Demeter (or, in other accounts, Gaea or a harpy) who to
escape him had metamorphosed herself into a mare. It was
successively owned by Copreus, Oncus, Heracles, and Adrastus.
It possessed marvelous powers of speech, and its right feet
were those of a man.
[Century Dict. 1906]
