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.
Not sure this is the right category, but this was printed in November's issue of MAD Magazine.
you can read the credits on the page, but
colors by me, nei ruffino.
but before you try to tell me your political views on this, remember , i'm just not into politics!
posting this means nothing but the fact i love working with JSC and want to show off the work we did. dont read into it any further, and please, if you have some long winded political argument to share, go into the politics or complaints forum.
and lastly, i was paid to do this, i did not do it out of some personal stance.
Well fianlly, here's that concept I had mentioned a little while ago for a Wagon Top boilered C-16. It's based/inspired by the early to intermediate C&S B-4-E class locos. I changed out and swapped a few parts here and there to suit my personal taste. Such as the DL&G "Pancake" style smoke stack, the D&RG style headlight and 4 pannel cab, C&S style boiler mounted air tanks, coal boards, and tool boxes.
The engine is for me and my friend's future HOn3 "Cripple Creek & San Juan Central" railroad. I know I could easily build this in On30, but HOn3 will be much more challenging. I'll come up with something though.
Well I hope you like it! COMMENT IF YOU FAVE PLEASE!!!
