Poseidon is the god of the sea and is one of the Olympic gods. The horse is sacred to Poseidon, which is why he is also called 'Hippios'. Similar to his brother Zeus, father of the gods, Poseidon uses lightning as a weapon. When the world was divided into three parts, Zeus received the sky, Hades the Underworld and Poseidon the sea. Together with the goddess Athena, he fought for the protection of Attica, but Athena was chosen as the patron goddess of the city-state and it was named after her.
The game set contains a 7cm tall Poseidon with his golden trident, wreath, shell, fishes, seahorses and column with inscription.
