The book centers around the discovery of an apparent gryphon skull (in reality a skull from a dinosaur), and the efforts of Sostratos to get the skull back to scholars for study.
The novel takes place in the areas around Greece approximately fourteen years after the death of Alexander the Great. As with the first book in the series, characters and locations are given a more literal transcription of their Greek names than the more common anglicized Latinizations.
