Poseidon & Demeter


The most interesting about Despoine her conception. In order to avoid Poseidon, Demeter transformed herself into a horse. In response Poseidon, god of horses (among other things) transformed himself into a horse and mounted Demeter. Months later when it was time to deliver, Demeter gave birth to Despoine as well as Arion, the fastest horse alive.
