N is for Nereus #mythology #atozchallenge

Unknown Greek Myth #14: Nereus
Nereus was a sea god and father of the Nereids, sea nymphs who assisted sailors in their journey. He spent his days as a bottom-feeder–literally. Kind of ironic since he was the god of plenty of fish (not in those exact words, but you know what I mean).

He was also kind of prophetic and his knowledge was what made Hercules kick his ass. The hero needed directions to the Garden of Hesperides as one of his labors. The god had the info, wouldn't give it up, so Hercules beat the divinity out of him. Go, Herc.

Happy N to Z!

  1. Go Herc! Wonder why Nereus didn't want to give up the info.

    1. Who knows. When it comes to the myths, the reasoning is probably pretty stupid. Entertaining, but stupid, lol.
