Eurybia (mythology)

In Greek mythology, Eurybia (/jʊəˈrɪbiə/; Ancient Greek: Εὐρυβία, Εὐρυβίη, meaning "wide-force"), described as "[having] a heart of flint within her",[1] was the daughter of Pontus and Gaia,[2] consort to the Titan Crius, and mother of Astraeus, Perses, and Pallas.[3] She was known as the goddess of mastery of the seas, or power over them—particularly external factors like the winds or rising of the constellations.[citation needed] An older, relatively minor deity, her role in most mythology is as the ancestor of other gods, and she often plays no role in the mythology.
