Criosphinx is an Egyptian myth technology in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Bast and can be researched at the Temple. Once researched, it upgrades Sphinxes to the Criosphinxes. The upgrade adds +50 HP, +20% hack attack, and +50% crush attack. Hieracosphinx is the further upgrade of this technology.

History[edit | edit source]

The ram-headed Criosphinx was a guardian of sacred Egyptian sites. The Temple at Karnak was once connected to Luxor and the Nile by the Avenue of the Sphinx – a road flanked by dozens upon dozens of the implacable riddle keepers.

“And yet the riddle was not to be solved by guess-work but required the prophet's art; wherein thou wast found lacking; neither birds nor sign from heaven helped thee, but I came, the simple Oedipus; I stopped her mouth by mother wit, untaught of auguries.”

-- Oedipus, Oedipus Rex
