Title: Almops  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: Helle (mythology)
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Almops (Ancient Greek: Ἄλμωψς) was in Greek mythology a giant, and son of the god Poseidon and the half-nymph Helle.[1] He was the brother of Paeon (called "Edonus" in some accounts).[2] With the others of his kind, the Gigantes, he waged war on Zeus and the gods of Olympus.

It is from Almops that the now-obsolete name for the region of Almopia and its inhabitants, the Almopes, in Macedonia, Greece, were believed to have derived their name.[3]
