 The Griffin

(Greek. gryps, loanword from babylon. -assyr. kuribu) was a hybrid being with the head and swing of an eagle in front and body, paws and tail of a lion in the back. The griffin played a far less important role in ancient popular beliefs than the heraldic animal and inn sign of the Middle Ages. But surely the people of antiquity saw him as a guardian of the gold mines. 

Bronze handle, size 19 cm, width 12.1 cm (original size), ca. 520 BC, National-archaeological museum Athens.
