About Phorcys Pharcos -

In Greek mythology, Phorcys, or Phorkys (Greek: Φόρκυς), was one of the names of the "Old Man [or One] of the Sea", the primeval sea god, who, according to Hesiod, was the son of Pontus and Gaia. According to the Orphic hymns, Phorcys, Cronos and Rhea were the eldest offspring of Oceanus and Tethys. Other names for the Old Man are Nereus and Proteus. His wife was Ceto and together they had many children, all hideous monsters (except for the Hesperides) collectively known as the Phorcydes. The Gorgons and Scylla were four of his beautiful children, but they were subsequently turned into monsters.
