A dragon is a legendary creature , typically scaled or fire-spewing and with serpentine , reptilian or avian traits, that features in the myths of many cultures around world. The two most well-known cultural traditions of dragon are:
The two traditions may have evolved separately, but have influenced each other to a certain extent, particularly with the cross-cultural contact of recent centuries. The English word dragon and Latin word draco derive from Greek δράκων ( drákōn ), "dragon, serpent of huge size, water-snake". 
The word dragon entered the English language in the early 13th century from Old French dragon , which in turn comes from Latin draconem (nominative draco ) meaning "huge serpent, dragon", from the Greek word δράκων, drakon (genitive drakontos , δράκοντος) "serpent, giant seafish". The Greek and Latin term referred to any great serpent, not necessarily mythological, and this usage was also current in English up to the 18th century.
