Sperchēus

Σπερχειός). Now Elladha; a river in the south of Thessaly, which rises in Mount Tymphrestus, runs in an easterly direction through the territory of the Aenianes and through the district Malis, and falls into the innermost corner of the Sinus Maliacus. As a river-god, Spercheus is a son of Oceanus and Gaea, and the father of Menesthius by Polydora, the daughter of Peleus ( Il. xvi. 174; xxiii. 142; Pausan. i. 37, 2).
