"Moses had horns"

Presentations, such as Michelangelo's famous statue depict Moses with horns, which otherwise are found only of the devil and satyrs. But nowhere in the Bible, is Moses not mentioned having horns. It is based on a translation error that was corrected in time. In Exodus, after Moses had received the second time the tablets with the Ten Commandments, his face had become bright. The Hebrew word "bright" can also mean "having horns", and hence the fourth century mistranslation.
