Drinking bowl, Theseus plunges Sciron into the sea, from Vulci (Italy), attributed to the painter Douris, around 480 BC, Altes Museum Berlin (13718490173).jpg

Skeiron was a robber and son of Poseidon.  Skeiron forced every man he met on sea to wash his feet. When the man would kneel down, he would kick them into the sea where he would be eaten by his ally, a giant turtle.

Theseus met Skeiron, fought him, and kicked him into the sea, feeding him to the giant turtle.
