English term or phrase: Manticore
"Origins from the Latin word mantichora and from the Greek mantichOras. It means a legendary animal with the head of a man, the body of a lion and the tail of a dragon or scorpion. Medieval writers used the manticore as a symbol of the devil. The earliest account of the existence of the manticore comes from the Persian courts in the fifth century B.C. Sometimes it’s also called Manticora."
