The Centaur of Tymfi

The Centaur of Tymfi was unveiled at the Barnum Museum in Bridgeport April 1. The Mayor of Bridgeport, the State Archeologist and others joined in on the April 1 presentation of what museum executive director Kathleen Maher described as an “inexplicable specimen.” Local experts, with tongues placed firmly in cheeks, revealed that The Centaur of Tymfi is the best specimen of its kind of record due to preservation within a cool, dry cave at 1,900 meters elevation in the Tymfi Mountains of northwestern Greece. Nicholas Bellantoni, the state archeologist, said after his scientific presentation about the centaur Tuesday that he felt as if his nose was, somehow, getting longer.
