What can bring the dead back to life, make you cry, laugh, and make you young; be born in a moment but endure a lifetime? What is always old and sometimes fresh; never sad and sometimes blue; never empty and sometimes filled; never pushes and always pulls? It is magic! The sphinx is an ancient creature from Egyptian mythology. Although riddles have been attributed to it since at least 250 B.C., modern depictions of the sphinx date only to 1550-1700 A.D.
Sphinxes are mythical creatures with the head of a lion and the body of a human being. They were created by Zeus in order to punish his brother Prometheus for giving humans fire. Prometheus had stolen the fire from heaven and gave it to humans because they would not worship him like a god. Instead, they made idols out of wood and stone that could breathe fire and smoke. This angered Zeus who sent a series of disasters against mankind in the form of lions, which killed all but one man for each city. In order to save these men, Prometheus created sphinxes to rescue them. However, only two cities spared their lives: Memphis and Cumae.
In both stories, the sphinx asks a riddle of its victim before killing them. If they do not answer correctly, they will die. If they do answer correctly, they live.
