According to wikipedia: "The earliest description [of unicorns by a Greek natural historian] is from Ctesias who described them as wild asses, fleet of foot, having a horn a cubit and a half in length and colored white, red and black."

Yes, apparently the ancient Greeks were under the impression that unicorns were newspapers.

(Or maybe zebras in blenders.)
