That's strange.... imdb.com doesn't list Triton as a character:

I just pulled out my dvd and checked the credits. There's no mention of who played Triton.

Maybe Ray Harryhausen, Forry, or Bob Burns might know.

I don't think Ray knows either:
http://www.cinemaretro.com/index.php?/archives/59-HARRYHAUSEN-EXCLUSIVE-COMING-IN-ISSUE-9!.html
"Q: You have a film background yourself Tony, working on publicity for many an iconic film, including Star Wars. Ray mentioned that he auditioned Dave Prowse (Darth Vader) for Triton in Jason and that the Minaton in Eye Of The Tiger was played by Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca)! Are there another other stories like that one?
TD: Most of the stories are in An Animated Life, at least the ones Ray has related to me. My favourite was that the actor who played Triton in Jason & the Argonauts was chosen because of the length of his arms so that he would be able to hold back the model clashing rocks. Although we tried, Ray and I never could identify that actor."

   Mario: I have a hardcover book from the mid-70's  about Harryhausen's work that might have the information in it but I'm working a double shift today and won't get home to look until after 9:00 p.m. "Ray Harryhausen's Fantasy Film Scrapbook" or something like that.

No such details in the FFS.

UPDATE! This thread caught my eye so I looked it up. So the actor who played Triton was Bill Gudgeon, not much history on him and it only took 13 years.

 Yep Kidagain, Bill Gudgeon.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jason_and_the_Argonauts_(1963_film)
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9271088/     list for Bill Gudgeon w/only JatA listed
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0345641/     list for William Gudgeon (same actor??) some film credits but not JatA but Triton photo. Cannot verify since IMDB is like Wikipedia and created with information not from verified/valid sources necessarily.
