(Titan) OCEANOS

Also known as OCEANUS, OKEANOS
Attributes : Coming soon
Festival Days : Coming soon too...
When in Rome : Yep, soon...

Primordial god of the world encircling river - the source of all rivers and streams.

Apparently his wife, Tethys - the goddess of fresh water flows, would give him a little tug and a new stream would pop out into her underground cavern. These are the Oceanids and Potamoi.

Although he was a Titan, being the son of Uranus and Gaia, he refused to get involved in the whole Uranus castration plot nor did he stoop to joining the Titans battle with the gods. Instead he concentrated on organising the heavenly bodies that were said to rise from his watery realm at day break and return at sunset. You wouldn't want a traffic jam, would you?

Rumour has it, Oceanos may have started out as Ophion, who did a somewhat short lived stint as first ruler of Olympus. Having been dethroned and cast into the ocean stream by Cronus he changed his name and threw the whole story of creation into chaos.
