Well it's interesting to note some of the creatures that did make it into mythology, particuarly dragons, sphinxes, manticores, and what not.
Although I'm extremely skeptical of this, perhaps a descendant of the dinosaurs of sorts had been alive at the time but were driven to extinction.
Supposedly Roman gladiator fights were what killed off the Mesopotamian Lion, so I suppose it's possible (abliet unlikely) that the Romans could've
killed off a dinosaur descendant or something.
