Gryphon is the debut album by the progressive rock band Gryphon. It was originally released in 1973 by Transatlantic, catalogue number TRA 262.

The album was produced by Lawrence Aston and Adam Skeaping and engineered by Adam Skeaping and Nick Glennie-Smith. It was recorded at Riverside Recordings and Livingston Studios. The gryphon cover illustration is by Dan Pearce.

This is the first Gryphon album, with the emphasis still very much on the acoustic and 'early music' instruments.
