Sailor Naptune - Michiru Kaioh

Neptune (Latin: Neptūnus) is the god of water and the sea[1] in Roman mythology, a brother of Jupiter and Pluto. He is analogous with but not identical to the god Poseidon of Greek mythology, and is imaged often according to Hellenistic canons in the Roman mosaics of north Africa.[2] The Roman conception of Neptune owed a great deal to the Etruscan god Nethuns. A north African inscription at Thugga referring to the "father of the Nereids" shows that Neptune also subsumed the archaic and by late Hellenistic times purely literary figure of Nereus.[3]

For a time he was paired with Salacia, the goddess of the salt water.[4] At an early date (399 BC) he was identified with Poseidon, when the Sibylline books ordered a lectisternium to honour him with Apollo, Latona, Diana, Hercules and Mercury[5]
