Question 424: Goddy's Gift; (HP)

In one of the myths surrounding Alexander the Great, Alexander's army was attacked by ____X_____ as they marched east, with a great number of soldiers killed. Rather than retreating, Alexander, admiring the creatures' strength and nobility, trapped four of them with meat lures fixed to his chariot. The ____X____ took the lures and were caught, then took flight, drawing the chariot high into the air, where Alexander saw the whole of Greece and Europe stretched out beneath him in the sun. Eventually they flew so high that the sun started to burn the ____X______s' wings, and they landed again. Since the establishment of this mythology, _____X_____have often been depicted as chariot- or carriage-pulling beasts for especially noble or powerful individuals.

However, in 1997, this word ( the creature's name) has entered the normal parlance (refer to the name of the post)
Question:
1) Id this creature.
2) Explain its connection to the picture
