In Greek mythology, Strymon (/stry'm?:n/; Ancient Greek) was a river-god and son of the Titans Oceanus and his sister-wifeTethys.[1] He was a king of Thrace.[2] By the muses,[3] Euterpe[4] or Calliope[5] or Terpsichore,[6] he became the father of Rhesus. His other sons were Olynthus[7] and Brangas.[2]

Neaera bore Strymon's daughter, Evadne who became the wife of King Argus.[8] He was also the father of Tereine who mothered Thrassa by the god Ares.[9] Another daughter, Rhodope became the mother of Athos by Poseidon.[10]
