Hebrew - peacocks

tukkiyim. 1 Kings 10:22; 2 Chronicles 9:21; in Job 39:13 for "peacocks" translated "ostrich hen". (See OSTRICH.) Related to Tamil togei "peacock," Sanskrit, sikhin "crested"; from its singular crown of upright divergent shafts, each tipped with a disc; Pavo cristatus (Linnaeus). Its ocellated train is not the tail, which is short, but the feathers of the loins, rump, and tail coverts, which it can at will erect into a circular spread disc. The peacock was unknown to the Assyrians, judging from the monuments; also to the Egyptians; but is mentioned in Aristophanes (Birds, 484), 426 B.C. Probably Solomon first brought it by his Tarshish ships to the West from the East.
