A heraldic beast that was half-man, half-lion. It had the body of a lion, two ox like horns and the face of an elderly bearded man. The Lympago also features in many medieval bestiaries. On rare cases the Lympago is drawn as having the feet of a Dragon. The Lympago is shown walking on all fours. The Lympago or Man-Tiger is sometimes confused with the Maticore. However these two creatures are very different. Their only similarity is the face of a man on the body of a lion.
