The third son of
Kronos and the brother of Zeus and Hades, he drew the seas as his domain to
rule. He was known also as the god of earthquakes and the god of horses. The
symbols most often associated with Poseidon were the trident and dolphin.
Sailors relied upon him for favorable winds and safe voyages, but he was moody.

harmed one of Poseidon’s Cyclops offspring.
