Oreas and Nesus were two Mythological Gods forgotten within Greek Mythology! Both are the representation of the Mountains and Islands. Check out all about these Elder Gods below.


     Nesus (in Greek: Νήσοι, transl .: Nésoi), in Greek mythology, were the island goddesses. Each island was said to have its own personification. They were classified as one of the ancient elementary deities called primordial gods. It was said that the Nesos were actually mountains, but Poseidon (Poseidon) hit them violently and plunged them into the sea with his trident.


     Oreas or golds (in Greek: Oὔρεα, by οὔρος, or ὄρος, "mountain"), in Greek mythology, were the mountain gods, sons of Gaia (the Earth) without a father, and therefore brothers of Uranus (Heaven) and Ponto (the Sea). The ancient Greeks believed that each mountain had a deity that was named after its own mountain, for example:
  • Acts (Άθως) - Thrace mountain (northern Greece).
  • Cilene (Κυλλήνη) - Arcadian mountain, birthplace of Hermes.
  • Citerão (Κιθαιρών) - mountainous group from Boeotia (central Greece).
  • Dicte (Δίκτη) - mountain of the island of Crete, place of the birth of Zeus.
  • Etna (Αἴτνη) - the volcano on the island of Sicily.
  • Hemo (Αἷμος) and Ródope (Ροδόπη) - two Thracian mountains.
  • Hélicon (Ἑλικών) - mountain of Boeotia, which competed with Citéron.


  • Ida (Ίδη) - two mountains, one located on the island of Crete and the other in the region of Troia.
  • Nisa (Νύσα) - mountain from Boeotia that created Dionysus.
  • Olympus (Όλυμπος) - home of the Olympic gods and the highest mountain in Greece, located in Thessaly
  • Ótris (Όθρυς) - mountain in Malis (southern Thessaly); the mountain was used by the titans in Titanomachy
  • Parnes (Πάρνης) - mountain of Boeotia.
  • Parnaso (Παρνασσός) - mountain in the center of Greece, dedicated to Apollo and home of the Muses.
  • Tmolos (Τμώλος) - Lydia Mountain (in Anatolia)
