The Oceanids were sea nymphs who were the three thousand daughters of the Titans Oceanus and Tethys. Each of them was a patroness of a particular spring, river, sea, lake, pond, pasture, flower or cloud. They were the sisters of the Potamoi.

Description

Each was the patroness of a particular spring, lake, river, sea, pond, pasture, flower, or cloud. Some of them were closely associated with the Titans such as Calypso, Clymene, Asia, and Electra or personified abstract concepts, like Tyche or Peitho.

Oceanus and Tethys also had three thousand sons, the river-gods called Potamoi. Whereas most sources limit the term Oceanids or Oceanides to the daughters, others include both the sons and daughters under this term.One of these many daughters was also said to have been the consort of the sea god Poseidon, typically named as Amphitrite. More often, however, she is called a Nereid.
