This Triton Fountain was sculpted by Vincent Apap and erected outside of Valletta’s main gate at Floriana in 1959. The Greek god Triton was the messenger of the sea and the son of Poseidon. Yet there are three mermen here and none are holding the characteristic trident. This suggests they are a host of Tritones. The mythological figures were fishtail Daemones of the sea and counterparts to seas nymphs.
