PHORCYS
Also known as PHORKYS

Old Sea God with some pretty horrible kids

Everywhere you go there are Old Men of the Sea, with seaweedy beards festooned in cockles riding along on the crest of a wave with wild and wonderful sex lives whenever they surf the beaches.

The bathing beauty who did most of the motherhood bit with PHORCYS was his wife CETO. And they spawned monsters without exception.

Amongst their offspring were the GRAEAE, the GORGONS, a Dragon called Ladon and just possibly the HESPERIDES, according to the findings of some beachcombers.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Phorcys graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Phorcys movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Phorcys statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Phorcys. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
