In Greek mythology, Coeus (Ancient Greek: Κοῖος; other spellings: Koios, Coues) was the Titan of intelligence. Titans are the giant sons and daughters of Uranus (Heaven) and Gaia (Earth). With his sister Phoebe, Titan of Brilliance and the Moon, Coeus fathered Leto and Asteria. Leto copulated with Zeus (the son of fellow Titans Cronus and Rhea) and bore Artemis and Apollo. As with the other Titans, Coeus was overthrown by Zeus and other Olympians. In Roman mythology, he is known as Polus.
