God of The Seas Picture

Poseidon was the God of the seas and, as 'Earth-Shaker', of earthquakes, horses and storms in Greek mythology. In Roman mythology, he was known as Neptune. He is the brother of Zeus and Hades, generally considered the second most powerful god after Zeus. Poseidon and Amphitrite, a nymph and ancient sea-goddess, had many children, including Triton, messenger of the sea, and herald to Amphitrite, and Theseus. There is a Homeric hymn to Poseidon, who was the protector of many Hellenic cities, although he lost the contest for Athens to Athena. He was the patron god of many important sea-faring cities, and was widely prayed for safe voyages, for he could quickly send a tempest to destroy those who disrespected him.
