little known fact about egypt and greece

we all know that the egyptians built the sphinx from the body of a lion and the head of a man in honor of some long-lost king. what most people don't know is the greeks have a sphinx to. the greek sphinx has the head of a woman and the body of a griffin and has a whole myth behind her as i discovered while reading the encyclopedia of mythology. well i doubt anyone is interested in my love of myths. :) i know i'll start posting the myth of the day :)


  1. Sounds very interesting! Thanks Heather! Did the greek sphinx have a name?

  2. idk the encyclopedia only discribes the story and doesn't say the actual legend
