Boreas (north wind)

  God of the north wind, Boreas was the only wind god with a cult in Athens. In 480 BC, Boreas helped the Athenians in the battle at sea of Artemision against the Persians because of his wife.
  He had abducted and married princess Oreithyia, daughter of king Erechteus of Attica. Together they had two sons, the Boreads: Kalais and Zethes. They took part in the expedition of he Argonauts and were the ones to defeat the Harpies.

Boreas. In Greek mythology, the North Wind, son of Astraeus and Eos, brother of Zephyrus, Eurus, and Notus. His home was in the Thracian Salmydessus, on the Black Sea, whither he carried Orithyia from the games on the Ilissus, when her father, Erechtheus, king of Athens, had refused her to him in marriage. Their children were Calais and Zetes, the so-called Boreades, Cleopatra, the wife of Phineus, and Chione, the beloved of Poseidon. It was this relationship which was referred to in the oracle given to the Athenians, when the fleet of Xerxes was approaching, that "they should call upon their brother-in-law." Boreas answered their prayer and sacrifice by destroying a part of the enemy's fleet on the promontory of Sepias, whereupon they built him an altar on the banks of the Ilissus.
