Anselm on Chimaera

"2. We also speak of as something that which has a name and is conceived by the mind, but does not exist in reality—as, for example, a chimera. For by the name “chimera” there is signified a
mental concept of a kind of animal; nevertheless a chimera does not exist in reality."

(Philosophical Fragments)
