Phorcys was a primordial god in Greek mythology, son of the Titans Pontus and Gaea. He was the husband of Ceto, with whom he had a number of children collectively known as the Phorcydes. Their children included the Graeae, the Gorgons, Echidna, and Ladon (although the latter is sometimes considered the child of Echidna and Typhoeus).
