In the west, the unicorn was first mentioned in 398 BC by Ctesias, a Greek physician and historian of Persia and India. He traveled to the Persian court and stay there, and worked as a doctor for 17 years under two rulers. Upon returning to Greece in 398, began writing Persicha Ctesias, Assyrian-Babylonian history totaled 23 books and over a period of ancient Assyrian monarchy, the founder of the Persian empire, and the history of Persia to 398 BC. Although the material is collected from the Persian archives and state records, but credibility is dubious, because the legendary quality and the fact that the writing Ctesias clearly contrary to the chronology of the Greek historian Herodotus. The work Ctesias' no longer exists, except in the abstract prepared by the patriarch of Constantinople Photius (c.860). Ctesias also wrote the history of India based on reports from visitors to the Persian and Indian merchants and envoys to the Persian court. Although the legendary and only based on reports of others rather than direct observation, but that's the only relic from India systematically, until Alexander the Great invaded the country. According to Ctesias, unicorn lived in India. He described them as "a wild donkey of a horse, even bigger. Their bodies are white, their heads dark red and their eyes are blue. They have a horn on their forehead which is roughly half a meter in length." This explanation is based on stories of travelers, and it seems to be a mixture of Indian rhinoceros, the Himalayan antelope, and wild asses. Unicorn horn itself has been described has a white base, black in the middle and with a sharp tip is red. It is believed to have healing ability. Dust filed from the horn, is considered to be a deterrent or protective from many diseases and toxins and can even raise the dead. Among royalty and nobility in the Middle Ages, became quite fashionable to have a drinking cup made from the horn of the unicorn because it should be able to detect toxins.
