“…At the same time he could not believe that that trove, supposing it had ever existed, still existed, and though he considered the treasure as by no means chimerical, he believed it was no longer there.” — Alexandre Dumas, ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’

Chimerical is ultimately derived from Greek khimaira, “she-goat” or “chimera,” which in Greek mythology was a monster having the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and the tail of a dragon.
