The sons of Oceanus and Tethys, on the other hand, were the potamoi, gods who personified the rivers existing throughout the land. They had the same names as the rivers of which they were the divine manifestation. Potamoi were described as powerful gods and were feared by other deities. Among the main river gods were Escamandro (also known as Xanto, was the god of the river Escamandro, in Troia), Aqueloo (river god of Aetolia), Asterion (river god of Argos), Nile (river god of Egypt) ), Tiger (river god of Assyria), Euphrates (as well as brother, river god of Assyria), Orontes (river god of Syria), Ganges (river god of India), Eurotas (river god of Lacedemonia ), Erimanto (river god of Arcadia), Asopo (river god of Boeotia and Argos), Ilissos (river god of Attica), Peneu (river god of Thessaly), Titaressos (also a river god of the region Thessaly).
In addition to these, the five river gods of hell were especially fearful: Aqueronte (the river of pain), Flegetonte (the river of fire), Cocytes (the river of lamentation), Lete (the river of forgetfulness) and Styx ( the river of hate), the latter two being oceanic. Unwilling to conflict, Oceano would have refused to ally himself with Cronos in his revolt against his father Uranus. Although Oceano also remained neutral in the conflict that opposed Olympians and titans, he can be considered as one of the artisans of Zeus' victory over his brothers. That's because, at the height of the war, Oceano advised the goddess Estige, her powerful eldest daughter, to leave the field of the titans and fight alongside Zeus. Estige was a goddess who represented everything that the underground world, the infernal world and also the aquatic world behave in terms of dangerous force.
The waters of the River Styx were so powerful that any mortal who drank them would be immediately struck down. By allying with Zeus, she takes with her the children who were born from her union with the god Palas, son of Crio: Nice (goddess of victory), Zelo (god of dedication), Cratos (god of strength and domination power) and Bia (god of brutal violence).
