Τhe sphinx with the head of a woman, the haunches of a lion, and the wings of a bird.
She was mythicised as treacherous and merciless.
Those who cannot answer her riddle suffer a fate typical in such mythological stories, as they are killed and eaten by this ravenous monster.
This deadly version of a sphinx appears in the myth and drama of Oedipus.
This name may be derived from the fact that, in a pride of lions, the hunters are the lionesses, and kill their prey by strangulation, biting the throat of prey and holding them down until they die.
