Poseidon is a Greek god known as Neptune among the Romans. He was one of the Olympian sons of Cronus and Rhea, and a brother of Zeus and Hades, with whom he split the realms. Poseidon's portion was the sea. In the Odyssey Poseidon puts obstacles in Odysseus' way. He sometimes takes on horse form. Poseidon wields a trident and travels in a chariot, sometimes accompanied by his wife Amphitrite. He is the god responsible for earthquakes, known as the Earth-Shaker. His name can be found spelled PO-SE-DA-WO-NE.
