What state's capital is named for a mythical beast that returns from death?
The Phoenix is a mythical bird known for rising from its ashes. Accordingly to ancient legend, the Phoenix is a bird that cyclically burns to death and is reborn from its own ashes. For this reason, the Phoenix often serves as a symbol of renewal and rebirth. The name of Phoenix, Arizona is a direct reference to this idea; Phoenix was built upon the ruins of a former civilization that had collapsed long before, apparently due to drought. The legend of the Phoenix focuses on its new life from the ashes, and served a perfect name for the new city.
