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