Kymopoleia (Greek: Κυμοπολεια) is a goddess of the violent storm waves potentially those caused by her husband. Kymopoleis was one of three legitimate children Poseidon had. Kymopoleia was also very large and somewhat clumsy and was not welcomed kindly at Poseidon's palace.

Ancient Text

"But the glorious allies of loud-crashing Zeus have their dwelling upon Okeanos' foundations, namely Kottos and Gyes; but Briareos, being goodly, the deep-roaring Earth-Shaker made his son-in-law, giving him Kymopoliea (Wave-Roaming) his daughter to wed."
- Hesiod, Theogony 817 ff (Greek epic C8th or 7th B.C.)
