Sphinx- A creature mentioned in both Greek Mythology and Egyptian, the Greek version is a half-woman, half-lion, winged creature whihc guarded the road to Thebes. The Sphinx asked the riddle &quot What walks on four legs in the morning, two at noon, and three in the evening&quot most ended failing and were killed by the Spinx. But Oedipus answered it correctly, man, for a babe walks on all fours, a full grown man walks on two legs, and an elder needs a support, such as a cane. In Egyptian Mythology, the Sphinx is a guard of the Pharoah and his possesions, and there are different species of the sphinx.
