"Trident-bearing Neptune was there, and sportive tritons and fantastic nereids, and upon dolphins’ backs was balanced a vast crenulate shell wherein rode the grey and awful form of primal Nodens, Lord of the Great Abyss. And the conches of the tritons gave weird blasts, and the nereids made strange sounds by striking on the grotesque resonant shells of unknown lurkers in black sea-caves"
H.P. Lovecraft, The Strange High House In the Mist

"Opiate oceans poured there, litten by suns that the eye may never behold and having in their whirlpools strange dolphins and sea-nymphs of unrememberable deeps."
H.P. Lovecraft, Azathoth

"Nereids-Sea nymphs of the Mediterranean: the fifty granddaughters of Pontus the sea god and Gaea the earth mother. They have some relationship to the mermaids of other seas and oceans, and like them are extremely beautiful, but they do not have fishtails."
Michael Page & Robert Ingpen, Encyclopedia Of Things That Never Were
