Aegeus

Aegeus is the name of the father of Theseus in Greek mythology, the king of Athens, and who gave his name to the Aegean Sea. His name may be derived from Greek aigeios meaning “of a goat” though it may also be derived from Greek aigis meaning “goatskin” or “shield”, the latter referencing the shield of Zeus or Athena. Another possible meaning is Greek aiges “waves”.
