A male lion in Egypt

The lion is a felid in the genus Panthera distinguished by the great manes of its males. It was historically endemic throughout Africa and the western half of Asia, favoring savannahs and grasslands but not deserts and dense forests.

During the Ptolemaic dynasty of Egypt, lion claws were popular among commoners as pendants, valued at 35 drachma each in 48 BCE.
