Triton

.

Son of Neptune, represented as a fish with a human head. It is this sea-god that makes the roaring of the ocean by blowing through his shell.

Hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn [hear the sea roar].”


Wordsworth.

A Triton among the minnows. The sun among inferior lights. Luna inter minores ignes.
