The typical Ipotane looked overall human, but had the legs, hindquarters, tail, and ears of a horse. However, some had humanlike rather than horselike legs. The Greek suggested by "ipotane" is Template:Polytonic (Template:Lang). It means a person riding a horse.Template:Fact It is also used as an adjective as in Template:Polytonic (Template:Lang) — horse riding people. The definition given above would fit Template:Polytonic — "horse-people".
Such a person would not look "overall human"; rather, the torso would look human.
