Perses (/ˈpɜːrsiz/; Ancient Greek: Πέρσης) was the son of the Titan Crius and Eurybia.[1][2] His name is derived from the Ancient Greek word perthō (πέρθω – "to sack", "to ravage", "to destroy"), the fact of which may have given scholars the impression that Perses was perhaps the Titan god of destruction. He was wed to Asteria (daughter of Phoebe and Coeus).[3][2] They had one child noted in mythology, Hecate, honoured by Zeus above all others as the goddess of magic, crossroads, and witchcraft.
