Agbè

Agbè- Fon (Benin) – In the Fon pantheon of deities (known as the Vodun), chief of the Sea Pantheon, one of the four pantheons into which the Vodun is divided. Agbè was the third-born son of the Creator, MawuLisa. He had a female twin named Naètè, who was also his wife. When Mawu-Lisa divided up the realms of the universe among her children, she told Agbè and Naètè to inhabit the sea and command the waters.
