from Wiktionary, Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License
Pegasus, the winged horse of Greek mythology, is inverted as seen from our northern latitudes, with his neck and head extending from Markab to Enif, the nose.
Senseless to him, of course, he thought, but not senseless, certainly, to that native of Enif V who had given it to him.
Note a fine pair in Equūleus just west of the star Enif in Pegasus.
Two of these four stars (Alpheratz and Markab) are valuable navigational stars and the nose of the mythical horse contains yet another in Enif.
