Viktor Korolkov “Семаргл”
Semargl or Simargl is a deity or mythical creature in East Slavic mythology. An idol of Semargl was present in the pantheon of Great Prince Vladimir I of Kiev. It may be the equivalent of Simurgh in Persian mythology who is also represented like a griffin with a dog body. But according to Vyacheslav Vsevolodovich Ivanov and Vladimir Toporov, the name comes from the Slavonic *Sedmor(o)-golvъ (“with seven heads”).
