A unicorn is a "mythological animal resembling a horse or a goat with a single horn on its forehead."

They were said to be extremely rare and fleet of foot - the reason why rare things are sometimes called "unicorns" today.

The earliest known references to unicorns appear in the Mesopotamian region and in India.

Ancient and medieval peoples believed that the unicorn's horn held healthful or even magical powers.

Those drinking from cups made from the horn were said to be protected from poison and certain illnesses. Some believed that only a maiden could catch a unicorn.

Sometimes, they were mixed with the legends of the Pegasus and given wings.
