Aphrodite, as noted earlier see Tales of the Titanic , actually predated Zeus and the other Olympians. She rose from the sea foam created when Cronus—the father of the Olympians—threw Uranus’s severed genitals into the sea. Aphrodite was caught working just once. Athena spotted her working at a loom and complained that this was her domain. Greatly apologetic, Aphrodite immediately abandoned her work and never took it up again. The goddess of love, lust, and mating never had to do a bit of work.

One of the major deities gods in Greek mythology , Poseidon was the supreme ruler of the seas. An awesome, unruly, and powerful god, Poseidon was associated with storms, earthquakes, and some other violent forces of nature. When angry, he could stir the sea to a fury, but he could also calm the raging waters with just a glance. Another name for Poseidon was Hippios pronounced HIP-ee-ohs , meaning lord of horses, a reference to the fact that he was believed to be the creator of the first horse.
Poseidon rode the waves in a swift chariot drawn by golden sea horses. He used his mighty trident not only to create earthquakes and stir ocean waves, but also to raise new land from beneath the sea or cause existing land to sink below the waters. Although often helpful to humans—protecting sailors at sea, guiding ships to safety, and filling nets with fish—Neptune could be a terrifying figure as well. Quick to anger, he directed his fury at anyone who acted against him or failed to show proper respect.
Poseidon later joined Zeus and Hades in overthrowing Cronus, and the three brothers then divided the universe among themselves. Zeus received the sky, Hades ruled the underworld or land of the dead, and Poseidon became god of the seas. Although Zeus was king of the gods, Poseidon often asserted his independence. Together they managed to put Zeus in chains. However, the sea goddess Thetis pronounced THEE-tis saved Zeus by bringing a giant from Tartarus pronounced TAR-tur-uhs —a realm beneath the underworld—to release the king of the gods from his chains.

Post a Comment. Saturday, February 9, Medusa and the affair with Poseidon. Perseus beheaded Medusa and weaponized her head. That bothers me. It also has long rankled me that in the myth Medusa was transformed from a lovely young woman into a hideous monster. This authority conflicts with my view. I have long held that Poseidon forced himself upon the girl, a virginal acolyte of a vindictive goddess.

As I mentioned before, I have had relations with the sea god, Poseidon or as some of you Romans call him, Neptune. He was the ruler of the oceans and the father to my child, Pegasus, a magnificent, white winged horse. You must recall that I was mortal, unlike my sisters, and was able to procreate. I was raped.

Ancient Greek Art Lesson. Roman name: Neptune. Poseidon gained control of the sea by drawing lots with Zeus and Hades. He also controlled lakes and freshwater springs. Poseidon challenged other gods and goddesses to become the patron god of certain cities. Poseidon offered a spring of seawater to the people, while Athena offered olive trees.
In one version of the story, the Athenians voted for Athena because of the usefulness of the olive trees. In another version the Olympians voted for the winner. All the goddesses voted for Athena, and all the gods, except Zeus, voted for Poseidon. Zeus abstained did not vote because he could not decide between his brother and his daughter.
Poseidon lost by one vote. After his loss, most accounts suggest that Poseidon flooded the entire area in retaliation. Offended by Odysseus, Poseidon caused Odysseus and his crew to get lost in fog on their way back home to Greece. Poseidon was married to Amphitrite, daughter of Nereus and Doris.
