Griffins John W

The griffin (griffon or gryphon) is a legendary creature with the body and tail of a lion and the head and often wings of an eagle. As the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle was the king of the birds. The griffin would be the king of all. The griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. Griffins are normally known for guarding treasure.
