The Sea Deities

Benthesikyme, a goddess of the waves, is the daughter of Poseidon and one of his many wives was Amphitrite, a sea goddess. Known as the “lady of the deep swells” Benthesikyme was nymph of the African sea and later went on to become the first known queen of Ethiopia.

 Kymopoleia was a goddess of the waves as Benthesikyme, only her mother is unknown. She was known as a “haliae,” or nymph of the sea who made waves, violent sea storms and earthquakes. She went on to marry Briareus, who was a storm giant with 100 arms and 50 heads.
