The Myth of Bellerophon and Chimaira
The monster Chimaira is some kind of dragon. Its head looks like a lion, the body like a goat and the tail is a snake. Out of its mouth flames were blowing. Chimaira lived in the mountains nearby Olympos and destroyed the region Lykia. Bellerophon was in exile in Lykia and the Lykian King ordered him to fight against Chimaira. Riding his winged horse Pegasus, Bellerophon began the fight. But Chimaira striked back and Pegasus went up in the air. Coming down, Bellerophon smashed with his lance Chimaira under the ground. So we still can see till nowadays the flames coming out of Chimaira`s mouth from underneath the ground. The people of the region wanted to celebrate the victory of Bellerophon and arranged a race. The athletes burned their torches with Chimaira`s flames coming out of the ground and started to run towards the city of Olympos. So this was the first "Olympic Game" in Anatolia.
And the Olympic Flame from today still remains to the eternal flame of Chimaira ...
