Roles of the Griffin
Origin of the Griffin
The griffin was known to have many different roles. The griffin was said to spend most of his time seeking out and guarding gold and treasures.Some stories say that the griffin was a trickster, like a sphinx, and would challenge others with riddles and if they figured out the riddle, he would give them the gold that he was guarding. The griffin was represented to be strong, stronger than an ox. It was said that it was a griffin who once pulled the chariot of Apollo, the sun god. Since the griffin had the ability to fly, that is why he was able to bring the sun god to and from earth. Apollo also represented knowledge, which is also a characteristic of the griffin. Stories also say that the griffin guarded the tree of life as well as the road to salvation. The greeks and romans also used statues of griffins to guard their tombs. The griffin became the adversary of serpents and basilisks, both seen as satanic demons.
Unfortunately, there is not much proof that the griffin is real, but there has been some research by historian and folklore expert, Adrienne Mayor that consists of dinosaurs that are much like the ancient Griffin
