Unicorn means 'one horn'. Most often unicorns are depicted as a white horse-like creature with a single horn growing from its forehead. Sometimes unicorns are depicted as a deer, ass or goat with a single horn. The horn is often depicted as long and straight, marked with spiral striations along its length.
In one of my blog posts readers commented that unicorns were mentioned in the bible. There are nine references to unicorns in the King James Version of the bible, a translation completed in 1611 by biblical scholars of that time.
unicorn a mythical animal typically represented as a horse with a single straight horn projecting from its forehead; a heraldic representation of such an animal, with a twisted horn, a deer's feet, a goat's beard, and a lion's tail.
The unicorn has at various times been identified or confused with the rhinoceros, with various species of antelope, or with other animals having a horn (or horns) or horn-like projection from the head. According to Pliny it had a body resembling that of a horse, the head of a deer, the feet of an elephant, and the tail of a lion, with one black horn projecting from the middle of the forehead. In biblical translation, unicorn may be used for a kind of wild ox.
The horn of this animal was reputed to possess medicinal or magical properties, especially as an antidote to or preventive of poison. It was also said that it could only be captured by a virgin.
