 for Arion
From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  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]
