Griffins are symbolically significant for its domination of both the earth and the sky - because of its lion's body and eagle's head and wings. It was born in the Hyperborean mountains, or perhaps in Ethiopia; some say it lives in the Indian desert, which it leaves only to find food. Griffins are the enemy of the horse. Griffins are strong enough to carry away an entire live ox. They are also known for digging gold from mines and are "the vigilant guardian of treasure and of kings. They have been called "The Hounds of Zeus".
