"Sphinx is a female figure"

Egyptian Sphinx is the representation of a pharaoh with a lion's body - no doubt pharaoh Khafra (2558-2532 BC), so a male figure. Probably representing the Pharaoh into the Sphinx as a sun god (Ra). Al other Sphinxes built later - from Karraic and Luxor - presents ram heads, as the new supreme god Ammon. But, in Greek mythology, the Sphinx is a monster, half woman half feline predators. And Hittites Sphinxes were feminine.
