Poseidon (Neptune) was the brother of Zeus. He was the lord of the sea. He was widely worshiped by seamen. He married Amphitrite, a granddaughter of the Titan Oceanus.

His weapon was a trident, which can shake the earth, and shatter any object. He was second only to Zeus in power amongst the gods.

He rose forth in a chariot drawn by dolphins, sea-horses other marine creatures.
