HS TRITON (S-112)
The ship’s crest presents a figure from the Hellenic mythology, ΤΡΙΤΟΝ. Triton was the son of God Poseidon and Amphitrite. He is usually represented as a merman, with the upper body of a human and the tailed lower body of a fish. Triton lived with his parents in a golden palace on the bottom of the sea. According to mythology, he was sailing into the sea in front of his parents' chariot, stopping the storm via the trumpeting of his shell.
