Poseidon Neptune
          Poseidon ( Greek: Ποσειδῶν, Latin: Neptune )is the god of the sea and earthquakes. Poseidon was seen as creating new islands and offering calm seas. He is the son of Cronus and Rhea, brother of Zeus, Hades, Hera, Demeter, Hestia.
His symbols are: dolphins, tridents, and three-pronged fish spears.

One of the most notorious love affairs of Poseidon involves his sister, Demeter. Poseidon pursued Demeter and to avoid him she turned herself into a mare. In his lust for her, Poseidon transformed himself into a stallion and captured her. Their procreation resulted in a horse, Arion.

Another story of Poseidon involves the competition between him and the goddess of war, Athena, for the city of Athens. To win the people of the city over, Poseidon threw a spear at the ground and produced the Spring at the Acropolis. However, Athena won as the result of giving the people of Athens the olive tree.
