<_Anchisaurus polyzelus_ (Hitchcock, 1865)>
Polyzelus was an archon, according to Aristotle and Plutarch, and is
associated with Rhodes. The name Polyzelus translates from _polys_ +
_zelos_, "many jealousies," in Greek. Polyzelus was brother of Heiron, who
conquered parts of Italy and fought with the Etruscans. This is all I can
Not contradicting Jaime in anyway, I simply wanted to throw in my two cents.
For me, during my _Anchisaurus_ research, Polyzelus came out as
"Much-coveted." I attributed this to it's status as "Possibly the earliest
dinosaur to be discovered (1818)".
