Khryseos & Argyreos were two dogs that were made out of gold and silver to be the guards of the palace of Alkinous, the King of the Phaiakians. They are sometimes only called The Gold & Silver Dogs of King Alkinous.

Homer, Odyssey 7. 87

"Golden doors closed the palace in [the palace of Alkinous King of the Phaiakians], and silver posts rose above the threshold; the lintel was of silver, the door-handle was of gold. Each side of the door were gold and silver watchdogs, deathless for ever and did not age, which Hephaistos with his wit and cunning had fashioned as guardians for the great house."
