This is an estranged race of centaur-like beings, referred to in a work published in the 16th century. They are half human, half horse, like the centaurs of classical Greek and Roman mythology. Unlike centaurs the Apotharni are both male and female as centaurs are only male.

John and Caitlin Matthews, The Element Encyclopaedia of Magical Creatures, 2013, Apotharni, p 31
