Historical Information

In medieval European and Greek folklore, the Basilic, more commonly referred to as the Basilisk, was described as a reptilian creature hatched by a cockerel from a serpent's egg, though in European lore it was described as being a bird/serpent hybrid. It was capable of turning any creature, save for the weasel and cockerel, into stone if looked directly upon. A similar creature, the Cockatrice (see Cockatrice), was said to be almost identical to the Basilisk save for its origins, which were a reverse of the Basilisk's (the Cockatrice was said to be born from a hen's egg hatched by a serpent).

Basilic Defined

"The Basilic, or The Ottoman Cannon was a supercannon designed by Urban, a Hungarian cannon engineer, at a time when cannons were still new. It was horribly inaccurate, but when it hit, it caused massive damage to Constantinople's walls. It lasted all of six weeks before becoming non-functional. After several hours of fire, the destruction of city walls created by the cannonballs allowed lanes of entry into the city for the troops of Mehmet II, and the Ottoman conquest of the city, one of the last remnants of the Byzantine Empire."-Wikipedia.com
