The Centaurs are said in fable to have been "half man and half horse," which is thus explained. They first practised the art of riding horses, and when Ixion, the Thessalian King, offered a large reward for the destruction of the bulls of Mount Pelion which committed great devastations in the surrounding country, the Centaurs, mounted on trained horses, attacked and slew the bulls. The Lapithae, a tribe of Thessalians, afterwards joined the battle with the Centaurs and drove them from Mount Pelion. [P. 12.]
