a few dragon references of note:

greek Drakon, also etymologically related to the eye and seeing - derkomai
the dragon's eye or glance is petrifying - turns to stone. same as Medusa serpents.
is this a reference to calcifying or making brittle, as with Antimony?
the dragon is also the primal hoarder, especially collecting shiny or golden objects.
Antimony is a hoarder in that the metals that are fluxed with it do not form amalgams
but are absorbed into it - at least the base metals. Gold is purified by it because of this same property.
Hebrew - ayin = eye and/or spring/fountain.There are plenty of alchemical references to fountains and springs.
The aries glyph is not only the horns of a ram, but a fountain erupting.

Indo-european - kurmis = worm/dragon
Kermes mineral is derived from antimony.

Leviathan is a dragon/sea monster/serpent.
Levi = branch; a-than = not death.

Wasn't Merlin frozen in ice, or stone? Was that from Morgana's dragon spell?...I'm having trouble remembering but have been meaning to research more on Arthurian legend.

Well I for one have both studied the Arthurian Legend and travelled to almost every site connected with it, and I must say it is a messy puzzle to sort out.

There are so many different versions of the legend and it makes it even more difficult when the legend itself is not really based on facts.

It should all be treated as a massive allegory!

I'm not sure about Merlin.
Doesn't ring a bell.

I was just looking at this again.
Branch - not death = tree of life ?

That's interesting, since stibnite/antimony was called alcohol.
