In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, sphinxes are legendary creatures that are said to speak in riddles. Valyrians also had their own version of sphinxes, though these had a dragon's body instead of lion's. Statues in the shape of Valyrian sphinxes are still found on Essos, a relic of times previous to the Doom of Valyria. The entrance to the chambers of the small council in the Red Keep is also flanked by two Valyrian sphinxes.
