Griffins were popular in ancient Greek and medieval decorative art.

The ancient Greek Gryps or Griffin was a legendary creature possessing the head and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion. They were said to guard riches and hoards of treasure.

"griffins were said to lay eggs in burrows on the ground and these nests contained gold nuggets."

PLINY THE ELDER

DESCRIPTION

Relentlessly the noble and fearless Griffon stands an ever watchful sentinel. His piercing cry shatters the quite still of the night, warning the unwary to leave. His treasure and that which he guards are forever off limits to mortal man.
