"Sometimes I stand upon the shore 
Where ocean vaults their effuence pour, 
And troubled waters sigh and shriek 
Of secrets that they dare not speak."
H.P. Lovecraft, Cycle Of Verse: Oceanus

"Look you upon my daughter, mark how fair She is bedight as Cerce. I shall act 
The green Oceanus."
H.P. Lovecraft, Alfredo; A Tragedy

"Okeanos was depicted in ancient Greek vase painting as a bull-horned god with the tail of a serpentine fish in place of legs, similar to his river-god sons."

"In mosaic art he therefore appears simply as a sea-god or the sea personified, with crab-claw horns, and for attributes, a serpent and an oar."
Aaron J. Atsma, The Theoi Project: Greek Mythology
