Demeter and Poseidon

Demeter followed by Poseidon

                                When Demeter was wandering in search of her daughter (Persephone), she was followed by Poseidon, who lusted after her. In order to escape Poseidon embraces, Demeter transform herself into a mare and grazed with the mares of Ogkios, realising that he was outwitted. Poseidon tricked  her with transforming himself into stallion and forced her to mate with him. At first Demeter was angry at what had happened, but later on she laid aside her wrath and wished to bath in the Ladon.  She gave birth to Poseidon daughter, Desponia and to Arion, a horse with the ability to speak human language.
