In Greek mythology, Cymopolea or Kymopoleia (Κυμοπόλεια) was a daughter of Poseidon, the greek god of the seas and earthquakes, and is thought to be the goddess of violent sea storms. She is a daughter of Amphitrite, a sea-goddess. She is also a Haliad Nymph.
She was presumably the mother of Oiolyke, who was given as the daughter of Briareus and a possible possessor of the girdle that Heracles was sent to fetch. The girdle was also said to have belonged to Deilyke (otherwise unknown) or, most commonly, to Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons.
In popular culture
- Kymopoleia was featured in The Blood of Olympus, a story in the book series The Heroes of Olympus. Feeling abandoned by her father, Kymopoleia works with Polybotes to hinder the demigods while sailing through the Aegean Sea, but is convinced by Jason to switch sides. Together, they kill Polybotes. Kymopoleia is nicknamed "Kym" by Percy.
