hieracosphinx

Hieracosphinx

The hieracosphinx is a mythical beast, a gryphon-like chimera found in Egyptian sculpture and European heraldry comprising a lion with the gryphon's aquiline head replaced by that of a falcon. The name was coined by Herodotus to the falcon-headed sphinxes that he saw in Egypt, the other being the ram-headed sphinx, which Herodotus called Criosphinx.
