PONTUS

Greek God

Also known as PONTOS

Primordial God of the Sea

He is not just a God of the Sea. He is the sea, born of Earth Mother Goddess GAIA.

But after a few too many mother’s hugs, GAIA gave birth to several of his children — all sea deities to keep him company. These included THAUMAS and NEREUS.

Any other information seems to have been washed away.
