Source and gods[edit]

Who said "Sometimes, she was thought of as the mother of Aphrodite with Uranus or with Zeus"? A source is needed.

How is the co-existence of Thalassa and Pontus justified or explained in Greek mythology? Thalassa and Pontus are both sea gods. I don't see the reason behind taking the same role.

ICE77 (talk) 03:28, 15 April 2011 (UTC) There is also Nereus, Oceanus and Poseidon. Probably all were non-IE in origin. Mythology is not very systematic. I edited the text to address the issue of "sometimes, she was thought ...". — Preceding unsigned comment added by Skamnelis (talkcontribs) 11:36, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Rewrite 2016[edit]

In rewriting the article, I addressed the 2014 tab that it was deficient in references. In going through these, it emerged that Thalassa is nowhere credited as the mother of Aphrodite, who was engendered from the seafoam, not specifically by this particular divinity. Once she was deleted, no figures were left that appeared in the family chart added in 2015. It was therefore irrelevant to the article, its footnotes particularly. The mention of Aesop's Fables was cursory as well as unreferenced and that deficiency has been addressed. Since they have been given greater notice, links can now be made to this article from the sites where the fables are listed. In addition, there is now a reliable reference to the figure's iconography and a more satisfactory illustration provided. Mzilikazi1939 (talk) 14:34, 13 January 2016 (UTC)
