PORUS
Also known as POROS

God of Expediency. What does that mean?

The son of ultra-wise METIS, he's the personification of suitability and readiness. In other words, wisdom leads to being prepared.

If that's too obscurely figurative for you, consider his marriage to PENIA, the Goddess of Poverty. She's always hoping to better herself, while he provides the means to do so. It doesn't seem to have worked so far, but give them time.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Porus graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Porus 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 Porus statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Porus. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
