So, I found this interesting sculpture on one of the buildings in my home town.
The Geryon of Dante's 14th century epic poem Inferno bears no resemblance to any previous writings. Here, Geryon has become the Monster of Fraud, a beast with enormous dragon-like wings with, the paws of a lion, the body of a wyvern, and a scorpion's poisonous sting at the tip of his tail, but with the face of an "honest man". He dwells somewhere in the shadowed depths below the cliff between the seventh and eighth circles of Hell (the circles of violence and simple fraud, respectively); Geryon rises from the pit at Virgil's call and to Dante's horror Virgil requests a ride on the creature's back. They then board him, and Geryon slowly glides in descending circles around the waterfall of the river Phlegethon down to the great depths to the Circle of Fraud.
Lorelei is a germanic river spirit/ goddess from the river Rhine in germany. The name "Lorelei" refers also to the rock at which is her court. She is a powerful river spirit that has worldwide worshippers. Lorelei and many of her court are similar to nymphs, but are actually an unusual form of elf. She presides at her court on Lorelei and is the queen of a Seelie court of the Rhine. She is powerful and benevolent and controls the powers of the river. She is known by some locals as "the maiden of the Rhine", and many know her as a fairy queen or mermaid.
