 Informat.io on Deucalion   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Deucalion was to build an ark and provision it carefully (no animals are rescued in this version of the Flood myth), so that when the waters receded after nine days, he and his wife Pyrrha, daughter of Epimetheus, were the one surviving pair of humans.
Their ark touched solid ground on Mount Parnassus or Mount Etna or Mount Athos or Mount Othrys in Thessaly -- it depends whose version one is reading.
But a shred perhaps of earlier myth survives in the tale that another survivor of the Flood was Megaron, who was roused from his couch by the cries of cranes (see crane (bird) for crane lore) and climbed to the top of Mount Gerania ("Crane Mountain") and so was saved.

The mounting of alpine expeditions to survey Ararat may appear to many readers of current reports to be something new.
All these localities might indeed be taken as the mount of our text with no less probability than the Ararat above described, except that tradition has not pronounced itself in their favour with such consistent unanimity.
In recent years a number of expeditions have had the same objective of finding the remains of the ark on Mount Ararat, the traditional site of its grounding, on the basis of a report of a sighting from the air supposedly made in 1917 by a Russian airman.

The Dragon is the head of all the beasts because it is the one that is most filled with the principle of Yang: it is bigger than big, smaller than small, higher than high, lower than low; when it breathes its breath changes to a cloud on which it can ride up to Heaven.
The Dragon has five colours in its body, and it is the possessor of a pearl which is the essence of the moon and a charm against fire; it can make itself visible and invisible; in the spring it mounts up to the clouds and in the autumn it remains supine in the waters.
The Unicorn is strong of body and exceptionally virtuous of mind, and it combines in itself the principles of Yang and Yin.
