Daughter of Nereus Picture

I'm sorry.

Horse-- I mean-- hippocamp anatomy is not something I am very well versed in.

This is a drawing of a sea nymph, or Nereid... and a mermaid horse (or sea horse or hippocamp). The Nereids were the fifty daughters of Nereus and Doris. Notable Nereirs include Thetis, mother of Achilles, and Amphitrite, wife of Poseidon. They are often depicted riding dolphins, sea monsters, or magical mermaid horsies.
