Ruling watery realms

By Debra Dobbins

In Greek mythology the Titan god Oceanus was the son of Uranus and Gaea. He presided over “water, seas, lakes, rivers, oceans, streams and ponds,” according to Wikipedia. Later on, Poseidon (known as Neptune to the Romans) was considered the ruler of the seas.

From this Greek god’s name comes the English word “ocean.”
