What is the modern allusion of Poseidon?

User Avatar
Trident gum represents his trident because that was his weapon The gum is not the best modern allusion I can think of. There are two much more appropriate ones. There was a passenger airliner with a tail that was large and raised and looked a bit like his trident. That was called the trident aircraft. Not the best allusion, but a bit better than chewing gum, because i doubt if Poseidon would have enjoyed chewing - He was too intent on venting his considerable anger. The best one I can think of is Britain's Trident submarine: A fearsome underwater monster with the capability of delivering nuclear warheads over great distances.

How did trident gum get its name?

The original Trident gum was made to contain three enzymes which were thought to soften dental tartar, so the name Trident comes from three enzymes (Tri) to promote dental health (dent).

Who is Poisiden?

Answer: Poseidon is the Ancient Greek God of the sea. He was the son of Cronus and Rhea. He was the brother of: Zeus, Hades, Hera, Demeter, and Hestia. He was relied upon by sailors for a safe voyage on the sea. Many sailors drowned horses in sacrifice of his honor. He lived on the Ocean floor in a palace made of coral and gems. When in a good mood, Poseidon would create new lands in the water and a calm sea. However, if he was in a bad mood, he would strike the ground with his trident and cause unruly springs, earthquakes, ship wrecks and drownings. He was also the god of horses and earthquakes.

Who is Poseidon?

Poseidon is the Greek god of the sea, horses and earthquakes. He rules the sea and controls how it behaves, whipping up storms when he is angry or upset, and creating horses from the seafoam when he is in a lighter mood. He also creates earthquakes when he is angry and is sometimes known as the Earth Shaker. Poseidon was born as a god during the 4th age, the age of the Titans. He is one of six children born to Kronos and Rhea, who were both Titans. It was prophesied that Kronos would be overthrown by his sons so, to prevent this from happening, Kronos ate all of his children by Rhea as soon as they were born. Because the children - Poesidon, Hades, Demeter, Hestia and Hera - were gods they did not die when they were eaten, but remained fully alive inside their father. When Rhea bore her sixth son, Zeus, to Kronos, she hid him so that he would be safe. When Zeus grew old enough he tricked his father into disgorging his siblings and they all re-appeared, unharmed. Kronos was eventually overthrown by his sons and then Zeus ruled the sky, Poseidon ruled the oceans and Hades ruled the underworld. Symbols associated with Poseidon include the trident and dolphins. His Roman name was Neptune.

Asked in The Odyssey, Poseidon (Neptune)

Why was Poseidon so angry with Odysseus?

User Avatar
There are different versions of the story. In Homer's Odyssey: Odysseus and his crew had blinded Poseidon's son, the Cyclops Polyphemus and then taunted Polyphemus afterwards. Polyphemus prayed to his father for revenge on Odysseus. In other versions, including the Odyssey movie: Odysseus had believed he defeated Troy without the help of the gods. So Poseidon wanted Odysseus to learn that man is nothing without the gods. Especially because it was he who had sent the sea serpent to kill the soothsayer who told the Trojans to burn the wooden horse. Poseidon was angry at Odysseus because Odysseus blinded Poseidon's son, Polyphemus, who was a cyclops.

What fate did Poseidon provide Laocoon and his two sons?

User Avatar
When Laocoon was preparing to sacrifice a bull to Poseidon, suddenly two fearful serpents were seen swimming towards the Trojan coast from Tenedos. They rushed towards Laocoon, who, while all the people took to flight, remained with his two sons standing by the altar of the god. The serpents first entwined the two boys, and then the father, who went to the assistance of his children, and all three were killed. However, some argue that it was not Poseidon who did this, but Athena or Apollo.
Asked in Poseidon (Neptune), Aphrodite (Venus)

What are Aphrodite symbols and why?

User Avatar
Aphrodite was gorgeous, perfect,eternally young woman with a beautiful body. Yes, but those are qualities, not symbols. ** Aphrodite's symbols are the scallop shell, the dolphin, doves, lovebirds, swans, golden apples, pomegranates and roses. I think the scallop shell and dolphin shows that she was born in the ocean from the foam. (One of the myths of her birth.) The doves, lovebirds,swans,and roses show her power, love. I suppose the golden apple is for her winning that apple thing against Hera and something. T.T; I forgot, it's one of the myths though. The pomegranates for Hades giving the pomegranate to Persaphone which banished her to the underworld.
