Typhoon'

The evil genius of Egyptian mythology; also a furious whirling wind in the Chinese seas. (Typhoon or typhon, the whirling wind, is really the Chinese t'ai-fun [the great wind].)

Beneath the radiant line that girts the globe,
The circling Typhon, whirled from point to point.
Exhausting all the rage of all the sky,
And dire Eenephia, reign.

Thomson: Summer.
