monstrous bird, rational and ancient, in Persian mythology, 1786, from Persian simurgh, from Pahlavi sin "eagle" + murgh "bird." Cf. Avestan saeno merego "eagle," Sanskrit syenah "eagle," Armenian cin "kite." Probably identical with the roc (q.v.).

The prince felt sure this must be the place of the simurgh.'

The nest of the simurgh was in the wonderful tree above him, and in it were young birds; the parents were away searching for food.
But there was no sign of the prince upon the roof; only, far away in the sky, the simurgh was seen carrying him off.
The rabble is like the sacred simurgh, of Arabian fable—omnipotent on condition that it do nothing.
Up and up flew the simurgh, till earth looked like an egg resting on an ocean.
