Poseidon (Greek: Ποσειδῶν, English: Poseidon), is the god of the sea in ancient Greek mythology, one of the twelve gods of Olympus. He is also the god in charge of horses. Legend has it that he gave mankind the first horse. His mount was a golden chariot driven by a white horse. He was the brother of Zeus and Hades.
When Poseidon is angry, sea monsters will appear in the sea. When he wields a trident, he can not only easily set off huge waves, but also cause storms and tsunamis, sink the continents, break the world, and smash everything to pieces, even It caused a big earthquake, and when his chariot galloped on the sea, the waves would become calmer and dolphins would follow him around. Therefore, Greek seamen and fishermen near the Aegean Sea adore him extremely.
The Romans corresponded to the Greek gods as Roman gods in the late empire. The Roman god corresponding to Poseidon is Neptune, and the Latin name of Neptune originated from him.
