Pherusa or Pherousa is the name of two different figures in Greek mythology.


Pherusa was a Nereid, one of the fifty daughters of Nereus and Doris. Her name, a participle, means "she who carries." She, along with her sister Dynamene, were associated with the power of great ocean swells. She is mentioned in Hesiod's Theogony.


Pherusa is counted by some authors as one of the Horae, goddess of substance and farm estates.
