Tiphon allegedly is the name of a star in the constellation of Draco that is inhabited by the lizard race. When in 1954 official contact was made with the aliens of Draco, ambassadors were exchanged. (One of these, O.H. Krill or Crill, is well known in the literature about these events). One of the ambassadors is said to be from Tiphon. (Branton, Dulce 11).
