TRITONAlso known as TRITONES
Son of [POSEIDON] and possibly a fish, he was a spectacular Merman.
TRITON was responsible for the Tritons, those strange convoluted beings with scales, fins and coiling serpentine fish tails which blow into conch shells with not quite human heads, and often with galloping horse legs. These are very popular on ancient ornamental fountains.
