Triton was the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite who lived on the bottom of the sea, in his parents’ golden palace. His body was similar to this of other gods, whereas from the waist down he had a fishtail.
He had an unpredictable spirit who had the power to transform and become especially dangerous and tireless in battle. Only Hercules dared to fight him and managed to make him show the way to the end of the world, where the field of Gods was, with the Golden Apples of the Hesperides.
This image is found in the Pediment of Hercules and Triton in Acropolis, from which only fragments of their bodies are saved to this day. It is assumed that Hercules was on top of Triton, squeezing his opponent’s body, pushing him from behind. In the scene, maybe Niriides were present, showing surprise and fear, while on the other side of the pediment stood Poseidon, towards whom Triton was looking with an expression begging for help.
