NEPTUNE

Roman Sea God

Also known as Neptunus

Think Trident, Beard, Sea

As a well-known god of the ocean he is as familiar to us all as fish and chips — or seafood pasta if you are Roman. p>He is usually seen striking a POSEIDON pose as the Romans basically borrowed him straight from the Greeks. It is possible that he started out as a rather mundane Roman deity of water or freshwater rivers before being upgraded to the Latin version of fearsome sea god POSEIDON.

GodNote: Sorry this Neptune article is a bit short. We have sent our Data Dwarves off to find more nuggets of information. Updates coming soon.
