Pantheon - Poseidon Picture
Poseidon - God of the Sea, and brother to Zeus. Because he was the god of the tempests and unpredictable ocean, he was considered to be a very unruly god. He was also pretty rebellious, and once even chained up Zeus with the help of Hera and Athena. It was believed that he caused earthquakes when he grew anger, and Hades feared the quakes would cause the underworld to cave in. Known for his love of horses, it was thought Pegasus, the winged horse, was his favorite, also likely because it was born from Poseidon's lover, Medusa.
