Oceanos

???










The son of Ouranos and Gaea and a Titan. He represents the water element. He married his sister Tethya and begot three thousand sons, the trickling rivers, and three thousand daughters, the Oceanides, who guarded all the deep Springs throughout [p. 51] the world. The Greeks imagined him as a vast river embracing the earth in which all things were born and all things died. In art, he is depicted as an old man holding a bullÍs horn, the symbol of the plentitude that comes from water. [pp. 51-52]
