About Abrasax / Anbraxas / Abraxis
In Persian mythology, Abrasax is a cross between a two-legged dragon and a serpent with the head of a cockerel. His weapon was a whip.  In some instances he is presented as a demon,  but in most sources he is seen as a god, specifically in Greco-oriental gnosticism. 
The name Abrasax means "supreme being" in Greek.  The Greek number values of the characters of his name also add up to the mystic number 365, which corresponds to the number of days in a year.  Abrasax is seen as Lord of the 365 Virtues, and each of these virtues is associated with a given day in the year.  The seven-character name (having seven letters in his name) is significant as well, for it is also associated with the seven planets. 
Abraxas stones were gems that held the image of the god, and often amulets and talisman would have at least one of these.  His image is usually the torso and arms of a human, the head of a cockerel, and serpent-cast legs. This is why he is sometimes referred to as Agnipede, meaning "snake feet," in some scientific literature. 
In some instances, he was a cross between a serpent and a two-legged dragon with the head of a cockerel.  Often, however, he is depicted with legs made of serpents, the head of a cockerel, with the torso and arms of a human.
