Capricorn is represented by a sea goat.

The constellation of Capricorn, or Capricornus, represents the Greek god pan, who turned the lower part of his body into a fish when he jumped into the river Nile to escape Typhon

Despite its faintness, Capricorn has one of the oldest mythological associations, having been consistently represented as a hybrid of a goat and a fish since the Middle Bronze Age. First attested in depictions on a cylinder-seal from around the 21st century BC, it was explicitly recorded in the Babylonian star catalogues as MULSUḪUR.MAŠ "The Goat-Fish" before 1000 BC. The constellation was a symbol of the god Ea and in the Early Bronze Age marked the winter solstice.
