The Centaurs are sometimes regarded as the embodiment of the wild nature of human beings. They were involved in confrontations during the wedding feast of Pirithous, Ixion’s son, and Hippodamia. The Centaurs were defeated by the Lapiths with the help of Theseus.
Os Centauros são por vezes considerados como encarnação da natureza selvagem dos seres humanos. Envolveram-se em desacatos durante o banquete nupcial de Piritoo, filho de Íxion, com Hipodâmia. Os Lápitas derrotaram-nos com o auxílio de Teseu.Luca Giordano (ca 1634-1705)-'battle of Lapiths and Centaurs'-oil on canvas-1625 Portland-Art Museum
