Greek? unknown mythological creature - please help


New Member
So, I found this interesting sculpture on one of the buildings in my home town. I was wondering what the creature could be. I looked into the history of the building to find that it was built by a rich merchant who had travelled the world so this could be anything.

More info:
-Built in XVIII Century (Germany)
-Human head, fish/scaly body and tail (curved tail), and paws of a dog or lion, and two small wings.
-Here it is:
(It was renovated recently so it does not look very old)

Please help, thank you.


It could be a heraldic symbol; the Satyre Fish was a compound monster with satyr's head, fish body and wings.
