In Greek mythology, Perses (/ˈpɜːrsiz/; Ancient Greek: Πέρσης) was the son of the Titan Crius and Eurybia.[1][2] His name is derived from the Ancient Greek word perthō (πέρθω – "to sack", "to ravage", "to destroy"). He was wed to Asteria, the daughter of Phoebe and Coeus,[3][2] with whom he had one child, Hecate, honoured by Zeus above all others as the goddess of magic, crossroads, and witchcraft.
