A monster was said to have been born at Ravenna, in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. It was described with a horn on its head, straight up like a sword, and instead of arms it had two wings like a bat. On the height of its breasts it had a Y-shaped mark on one side and a cross on the other. At the waist there were two serpents, and it was a hermaphrodite. The right knee had an eye, and its left foot was like an eagle.
