6136 Gryphon           Discovered 1990 Dec. 22 by A. Natori and T. Urata at the JCPM Yakiimo Station.
In Lewis Carroll's Alice's adventures in Wonderland, the Gryphon had an eagle's head, a front half with wings and talons, and at the back a lion's legs and tail. Unfortunately, Alice did not quite like the look of the creature. The Gryphon appears to have been a friend of the Mock Turtle.
