Oceanus in Greek mythology is the Titan god of the world-ocean, considered to be an enormous river encircling the world. The first-born son of Uranus and Gaia, Oceanus refused to join with Cronus in usurping his father. In the struggle between the Titans and the Olympians (mythology) (the Titanomachy), Oceanus along with Prometheus and Themis, abstained from the conflict. With his sister Tethys Oceanus fathered the ocena nymphs and all the rivers and lakes of the world.
