POTAMOI

Greek River Gods

A bunch of boyish River Gods

These are the butch bull-headed brothers of the OCEANIDS. In contrast to their airy-fairy sisters, the POTAMOI are extremely manly river deities.

No flitting and floating on dreamy mists for them. Oh no. Rivers are serious places. Rivers are no places for frivolous female spirits.

That’s why these strapping young male deities all have the heads of bulls and engage in muscular manly activities such as pouring heavy jugs of water all over each other.

There are three thousand of these POTAMOI river dudes. We suggest you leave them to it.
