griffin, griffon or gryphon (‘grifin) - noun
a legendary creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. As the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle was the king of the birds, the gryphon was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. The gryphon was also thought of as king of the creatures. In antiquity the gryphon was a symbol of divine power and a guardian of the divine.
