In European heraldry, the musimon (also known as the tityrus or tytron) is a fabulous hybrid used to symbolize one in authority who leads with strength.


Used in this sense, the musimon is a cross between a goat and a sheep; it has the feet and body of a goat, the head and beard of a ram, and two horns from each for a total of four -- two curved and two straight.

Musimon can also refer to the real animal also known as the mouflon (Ovis musimon), a wild short-fleeced mountain sheep found on the islands of Corsica and Sardinia and parts of mainland Europe.
