TRITON

Greek Sea God

Also known as Tritones

Fishy Messenger of the Sea

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.
