Although he is most familiar as the ancient Greek god of the sea, the trident-wielding Poseidon also ruled over horses and natural phenomena such as floods and earthquakes. This volume is the catalogue of a 2014 exhibition. It brings together 125 ancient works of art with essays examining the stories told about the god in myth; his Greek, Roman and Etruscan iconography; and the importance of the sea, shipbuilding, marine life and seafood to his ancient worshippers.
