ACO Great Sphinx

The Great Sphinx

The Great Sphinx of Giza, often known simply as the Sphinx, is a limestone sphinx statue located in Giza, Egypt.

Easily one of Egypt's more recognizable monuments, it lies within the Giza necropolis, a short distance to the east from the Pyramid of Khafre, and represents the mythical creature for which it is named. It is widely believed to be a monument to Khafre, built during the Old Kingdom


During his time traveling Egypt, Bayek encountered the Sphinx and explored a series of tunnels hidden below the statue, leading him to the Isu ruin of Eesfet Oon-m'Aa Poo.[1] The Medjay also visited the market set up in the colonnade near the monument during his search for the member of the Order of the Ancients known as the Hyena.[2]
