What's in a name ?
Peacocks live wild in various locations in Rhodes. The kings of ancient Persia domesticated the peacock as a decorative bird. Greek kings in turn imported Peacocks from the Persian Empire. According to Greek mythology, the "eyes" on the tail of a peacock were placed there by Hera (the wife of Zues) to commemorate her faithful watchman, Argus who had a hundred eyes.
