Apollo is the Olympian god of the sun and light, music and poetry, healing and plagues, prophecy and knowledge, order and beauty, archery and agriculture.
An embodiment of the Hellenic ideal of kalokagathia, he is harmony, reason and moderation personified, a perfect blend of physical superiority and moral virtue. - from: greekmythology.com
Griffin is a mythical creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle. Since classical antiquity, griffins were known for guarding treasures and priceless possessions. Pliny the Elder wrote, "Griffins were said to lay eggs in burrows on the ground and these nests contained gold nuggets." - wikipedia
