Not sure about the math, and not sure if there are magical weapons with a bonus higher than +1 in the game, but here is my shot at the Gorgon!

Alertness. The Gorgon has advantage on Perception checks, and +5 to Passive Perception.
Divine Aura (1/day). The Gorgon can cast the enthrall spell.
Poison Sense (1/day). The Gorgon can cast the detect poison and disease spell.
Regeneration. If he’s has at least one hit point left, and less than half his total hit points, the Gorgon regains 10 hit points at the start of its turn.
Spellcasting. The Gorgon is a 16th level spellcaster. Its spell casting ability is Intelligence (spell save DC 19, +11 to hit with spell attacks). The Gorgon has the following wizard spells prepared:
Cantrips (at-will) fire bolt, light, mage hand, poison spray, ray of frost.
1st (4) burning hands, detect magic, magic missile, thunderwave

Multiattack. The Gorgon makes 4 attacks with his sword.
Sword. Melee Weapon Attack: +15 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (2d8+9) slashing damage
Petrifying Gaze. The Gorgon focuses his gaze on one creature. The target must make a DC 19 Constitution saving throw. If the saving throw fails by 5 or more, the creature is instantly petrified. Otherwise, a creature that fails the save begins to turn to stone and is restrained. The restrained creature must repeat the saving throw at the end of its next turn, becoming petrified on a failure or ending the effect on a success.
Death Gaze. The Gorgon focuses his gaze on one creature. The target must make a DC 19 Constitution saving throw. If the saving throw failed by 5 or more, the creature is instantly reduced to 0 hit points. Otherwise, a creature that fails the save slowly rots away, suffering 5d10 negative energy damage. He must repeat the saving throw at the end of its next turn, suffering 5d10 negative energy damage on a failure or ending the effect on a success.
The Gorgon can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature’s turn. The Gorgon regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

I got the DMG, so I had another look at this following the guidelines on "creating a new monster"... and now I know that magic items go up to +3!
