  Oceanus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Oceanus or Okeanos refers to the ocean, which the Greeks and Romans regarded as a river circling the world.
Oceanus' consort is his sister Tethys, and from their union came the ocean nymphs, also known as the three-thousand Oceanids, and all the rivers of the world.
Though Herodotus was skeptical about the physical existence of Oceanus, he rejected snowmelt as a cause of the annual flood of the Nile river; according to his translator and interpreter Livio Catullo Stecchini, he left unsettled the question of an equatorial Nile, since the geography of Sub-Saharan Africa was unknown to him.

My purpose is not to persuade children from their parents, men from their wives, nor servants from their masters; only such as with free consent may be spared.
As necessity was a taskmaster over them, so they were forced to be such, not only to their servants (but in a sort) to their dearest children; the which as it did not a little wound the tender hearts of many a loving father and mother, so it produced likewise sundry sad and sorrowful effects.
The fountains of learning and religion are so corrupted as (besides the unsupportable charge of their education) most children, even the best wits and of fairest hopes, are perverted, corrupted, and utterly overthrown by the multitude of evil examples and the licentious government of those seminaries.
