The basilisk, Schönlaterngasse 7.
According to a myth, on 26 June 1212, the servant of a baker
discovered a basilisk at the bottom of the well in the courtyard.
He destroyed it by holding a mirror to it (looking into its eyes was known to be fatal).
The basilisk exploded.
Now I know where JK got her ideas from.
