What is a Griffin?

What is a Griffin? Is it spelt griffin, Gyphon, or griffon?
Well, a griffin is a creature with the head, beak, wings and torso of an Eagle, While the hind courtiers and ears are of a lion. The Picture to the left is how I see griffins to be and believe it can tell you in more ways then I what a Griffin is. The Griffin (as a symbol) signififies the union of strength and agility. These creatures were extremely sacred to the Greek god Apollo. They are also supposed to be the guardians of secret treasures and mines. I hope, in time, to have more here about the mythologies of these mighty creatures
As for how you spell Griffin, Gryphon, Giffon, The world may never know....
