In ancient Greek mythology, Poseidon was worshipped as the God of the Sea. Adept at gathering clouds and creating violent storms, Poseidon was responsible for countless shipwrecks and the drowning of many souls, yet he also held the power to grant a ship a successful voyage, and to save those in danger. He is also often referred to as the ‘earth-shaker’ due to his penchant for causing earthquakes.
