Poseidon (Greek: Ποσειδῶν; Latin: Neptūnus) was the god of the sea and, as "Earth-Shaker," of earthquakes in Greek mythology. Poseidon has many children. There is a Homeric hymn to Poseidon, who was the protector of many Hellenic cities, although he lost the contest for Athens to Athena.

Poseidon was a son of Cronus and Rhea. In most accounts he is swallowed by Cronus at birth but later saved, with his other brothers and sisters, by Zeus. However in some versions of the story, he, like his brother Zeus, did not share the fate of his other brother and sisters who were eaten by Cronus. He was saved by his mother Rhea, who concealed him among a flock of lambs and pretended to have given birth to a colt, which she gave to Cronus to devour. According to John Tzetzes the kourotrophos, or nurse of Poseidon was Arne, who denied knowing where he was, when Cronus came searching; according to Diodorus Siculus. Poseidon was raised by the Telchines on Rhodes, just as Zeus was raised by the Korybantes on Crete.

According to a single reference in the Iliad, when the world was divided by lot in three, Zeus received the sky, Hades the underworld and Poseidon the sea. In the Odyssey (v.398), Poseidon has a home in Aegae.

Poseidon was a major civic god of several cities: in Athens, he was second only to Athena in importance, while in Corinth and many cities of Magna Graecia he was the chief god of the polis. In his benign aspect, Poseidon was seen as creating new islands and offering calm seas. When offended or ignored, he supposedly struck the ground with his trident and caused chaotic springs, earthquakes, drownings and shipwrecks. Sailors prayed to Poseidon for a safe voyage, sometimes drowning horses as a sacrifice.

According to Pausanias, Poseidon was one of the caretakers of the oracle at Delphi before Olympian Apollo took it over. Apollo and Poseidon worked closely in many realms: in colonization, for example, Delphic Apollo provided the authorization to go out and settle, while Poseidon watched over the colonists on their way, and provided the lustral water for the foundation-sacrifice. Xenophon's Anabasis describes a group of Spartan soldiers in 400–399 BCE singing to Poseidon a paean — a kind of hymn normally sung for Apollo.

Hola, soy de España y ahora mismo estamos celebrando las Hogueras de Alicante. Ayer pasando por una feria, una de las atracciones tenia un monton de dibujos de poseidon y uno de ellos era el de este dibujo que hiciste. Me llamó la atención y te lo quise decir. Un saludo desde España, sigue dibujando que lo haces de miedo.

There's a shop in Marathon, FL that currently has a cropped version of this artwork above their door (its like 5ft by 5ft and framed) with their business's name plastered on it. I saw it and was like "...That looks like Genzoman's art." Quick look through your gallery and I found it. :)

Makes sense; earthquakes are often the things that cause tidal waves.

Hello, I'm a student who's currently doing an Ancient Mythology concept art project at college; in this project I have to find some drawings and ask their respective artist some questions about them. I've seen this drawing and I really like it, so firstly I would like to ask your permission to use it in my project and secondly, if the answer to the previous question is yes, I would like to know if you could kindly answer some questions about your drawing. If you agree then please reply me back so I'll send you the questions, if not thank you anyway.
