From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    (Prov. 30:31), the rendering of the Hebrew _zarzir mothnayim_,
    meaning literally "girded as to the lions." Some (Gesen.; R.V.
    marg.) render it "war-horse." The LXX. and Vulgate versions
    render it "cock." It has been by some interpreters rendered also
    "stag" and "warrior," as being girded about or panoplied, and
    "wrestler." The greyhound, however, was evidently known in
    ancient times, as appears from Egyptian monuments.
