God of the Underworld and Judge of the Dead

Something shady is going on. He is the Roman version of Hades, the Greek god of the dead. The son of SATURNUS, he rules the gloomy roost with his part-time wife PROSERPINA. If you want to know more, consult the entry under HADES. 'Dis' is also annuder name for dat ole PLUTO.

Nowadays he's always in the picture and never misses a chance to get himself painted. Raphael, Carrache, Giordine, Walt Disney. Take your pick.

Note: We are happy to confirm that PLUTO is a god. Not a planet.
