    its not spelling its just diffrent ways

    pour examplè

    phoenix is the correct way of spelling the mythical creature born from the ashes

    while phenix is for rets who seem to think thats how its spelt

    gryphon and griffin are actually the same thing but gryphon is ye olde way of spelling it

    As mentioned, it's just different spellings of the same thing, none of them correct or incorrrect:

    Gryphon
    Griffon
    Griffin

    All are a mythical creature that is half lion, half eagle. Makes you wonder about the logistics of the reproductive process that lead to that one...
