A2Z 7

G for Griffin, a beast with the head and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion…hybrid, powerful, majestic creature of ancient Egyptian and Persian mythology. Traditionally, griffins were depicted with the body, tail, and hind legs of a lion in addition to the head, wings, and talons of eagles. In legend, griffins were creatures that guarded rich deposits of gold in the mountains of Skythia (Scythia) in north-eastern Europe. Their one-eyed neighbours, the Arimaspians, battled them for these riches.
