In Greek mythology, Thalassa was the primordial goddess of the sea. Together with Pontos (Pontus), her male counterpart, she produced the fish and other sea creatures. As a sea deity, Thalassa was considered to be the actual personification of the sea’s water, specifically the water of the Mediterranean and in the fables of Aesop, manifests as a woman formed of sea-water rising from her native element. Thalassa is depicted in Greco-Roman mosaics as a matronly woman, half-submerged in the sea, with crab-claw horns, seaweed for clothes, and a ship’s oar in her hand.
