Poseidon (Neptune) was Zeus brother, sole ruler of the oceans and governor of all waters. Poseidon was also the personification of the sea. Dissatisfied with his position, he once conspired to dethrone Zeus, but his plot was discovered and he was temporarily exiled to earth. Poseidon usually lived in the coral caves of his kingdom rather than on Olympus. He had loved the Gorgon Medusa and, when drops of blood form her severed head fell into the sea, he created from them the winged horses Pegasus and Chrysaor. The most famous Poseidon’s children was Triton, whose body was half man and half fish, and who gave his name to all his male descendants. Poseidon was principally worshipped by seamen and horse-trainers.
