The Abath is a creature similar to a European Unicorn that was first found in documents dating around the 16th century.
European travelers brought back reports of these creatures from the Malay Peninsula.
Described as female, with a single longer horn growing from its head, it is widely believed that the Abath was nothing more then a half glimpsed Javan or Sumatran Rhino.
(No word on how they could tell it was a female)
Like the mythical Unicorn, the Abaths horn, when powdered,supposedly acted as a aphrodisiac and all-curing antidote.

Hey! wikipedia has the same definition!
p.s. you should check out "a dictionary of fabulous beasts" from boydell press circa 1971, and "Hargreaves New Illustrated Beastiary". they're both great books.
4 out of 5 found this valuable. Do you?
