(Greek Deity) ASOPUS

Also known as ASOPOS
Class : Deity
Greek God of : The River Asopus
Attributes : Unknown
Festival Days :
When in Rome : Unknown

River God son of Oceanus and Tethys, husband of Metope and father of twenty spritely spring Naiades.

Asopus caught Zeus red-handed doing unspeakable things to his favourite daughter, Aegina, on the island of Oenopia, and he wasn't best pleased. But what can you do against thunderbolts, really?

Conflicting stories claim Asopus could actually be the son of Zeus and Eurynome, or even Poseidon and Pero. Whichever way you look at it the Zeus family tree was extended by one when Aegina gave birth to Aeacus.

Oh, and i'm sure it will come as a huuuge suprise to know that Asopus was god of the river Asopus.
