Mythology Monday: Monsters

Sphinx – Greek Mythology

Female monster with the body of a lion, breast and head of a woman, eagles wings and according to some stories the tail and head of a serpent.
She was sent by the gods to plague the town of Thebes for an ancient crime.
She prays on the youth, eating anyone who couldn’t solve her riddle.
Oidipous accepted the challenge of the king to destroy the Sphinx for a large reward.
When he solved her riddle she threw herself off a cliff in despair as an oracle foretold.

In the spirit of the Sphinx here is a riddle for you….
I  Build Bridges of Silver and Crowns of Gold, Who Am I?
