Originally from Persian mythology, where it was presented as an anthropophagous monster; the term that identifies it also has origin in the Persian language: of martiya (man) and khvar (to eat). The word was later used by the Greeks, in the Mantikhoras form, which gave rise to the Latin Mantichora. The figure was referred to in Europe through the accounts of Ctesius of Cnidus, a Greek physician at the court of King Artaxerxes II, in the 4th century BCE, in his notes on India ("Indika"). This work, much used by the Greek writers of Natural History, has not survived until the present time. Pliny the Elder included it in his Natural History. Later, the Greek writer Flavius ​​Philostratus mentioned it in his work Life of Apollonius of Tiana (Book III, Chapter XLV). with a skin that repels almost every known spell. According to some legends, the manticoras appeared when a king was cursed and became manticore. Apparently these creatures were inspired by tigers.

To this day, many stories of missing people in India are linked to Manticore. Today we know that, in fact, those responsible for the disappearances were the tigers. The manticore is famous for humming softly while eating its prey in order to distract and / or frighten it.
