The leucrota
Leucrota /leucrota/ 10X8.7 cm
The legend of leucrota comes to the bestiary, to the treatise of Pseudo-Hugh /III.7/ and to writings by Brunetto Latini /I.V.194/ from Pliny /VIII.21.30/ and Solinus /52.34/. Leucrota lives in India and is very swift-footed. He is the size of an ass, has the haunches of a stag, the breast of a lion, the head of a horse, cloven hooves, and a very broad mouth. Instead of teeth he has one flat curved bone, and his voice resembles a human voice.
