Greek River God

Very large River God with bull's head and serpent's tail

The son of OCEANUS and TETHYS, he’s very wet and slippery.

One day he had a run-in with HERACLES over some female, and had one of his horns snapped off.

This in turn was snapped up by PLUTUS, God of Wealth, who filled it with goodies and turned it into the Horn of Plenty.
