TRITON

TRITON (Τρίτων, Diod. 5.72), a river of Crete at the source of which Athene was said to have been born. From its connection with the Omphalian plain, it is identified with the river discharging itself into the sea on the N. coast of the island which is called Platypérama, but changes its name to Ghiófiro as it approaches the shore. (Pashley, Travels, vol. i. p. 225.)
