In Greek mythology, Thoosa or Thoösa (pronounced: /θoʊˈoʊsə/, Greek: |Θόωσα, Thoōsa) was a sea nymph associated with swiftness, and the mother of the Cyclops Polyphemus by the god Poseidon (Odyssey, book I, lines 70–72). According to Homer, she was the daughter of Phorcys, but no mother is mentioned. Her mother is most likely Phorcys wife Ceto, making her one of the Phorcydes.
