They were a tribe of centaurine sea-gods with the upper bodies of men, the lower fore-quarters of horses, and the serpentine tails of fish. Their brows were crowned with a pair of lobster-claw horns.
The two best known were named Bythus (Sea-Depths) and Aphrus (Sea-Foam). They were brothers of the wise centaur Chiron and like him were perhaps regarded as wise teachers.
