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 wreathëd horn [hear the sea roar]”. Wordsworth.

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