A river god in Phrygia, son of Oceanus and Tethys. He was the husband of Metope and was by her the father of Hecabe.1 Another daughter is Nana, the mother of Attis.

The name of the river was said to derive from a certain Sangas, who had offended Rhea and was punished by her by being turned into water.2
