Etymology From the Greek Πυρρὸς, flame-coloured, yellowish red; and δράκων, dragon. The name alludes to the Great Red Dragon of the Book of Revelation, because its highly intricate ornamentation is not unlike that of a dragon and its colour accurately matches with the description given by John the Apostle. The Book of Revelation (12.3) indeed states: “καὶ ὤφθη ἄλλο σημεῖον ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ, καὶ ἰδοὺ δράκων πυρρὸς μέγας, ἔχων κεφαλὰς ἑπτὰ καὶ κέρατα δέκα καὶ ἐπὶ τὰς κεφαλὰς αὐτοῦ ἑπτὰ διαδήματα”, which is translated as follows in the Holman Christian Standard Bible: “Then another sign appeared in heaven: There was a great fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads were seven diadems”. [details]
