The Greek sphinx was known to pose riddles to passersby and devour those who couldn't solve them. The most famous example is the Sphinx of Thebes, which was defeated by Oedipus by answering its riddle.
The concept of the sphinx also spread across many civilizations of antiquity. In Greek mythology, the sphinx was described as a creature with the head of a woman, the body of a lion, and the wings of a bird.
Among the most famous statues of sphinxes, we can mention:- The Great Sphinx of Giza: The large sphinx statues located near the pyramids of Giza in Egypt are among the most iconic.
