The god Hades has several proper names. The Greeks also called him Hades, and in Roman mythology, he is known as Pluto - huge, limping, dark-skinned, terrible, awesome appearance. And, finally, Polydegmon (from “poly” - a lot, “degmon” - to contain), i.e., “accommodating a lot”, “accepting a lot”. What did the ancients mean? Only the Greek god Hades led the realm of the dead. All the souls who left this world fell into his "diocese". Therefore, it accommodates "many", and there are isolated cases when someone could go back.
He is the son of Kronos and Rhea, the brother of Zeus, Poseidon, Hera, Demeter, and Hestia. When the world was divided after the overthrow of his father, Zeus took the sky for himself, Poseidon for the sea, and Hades the underworld; the brothers agreed to rule the land together. Also, Hades was considered the patron of underground treasures, yielding a harvest from the depths of the earth.
Ruthless, cunning, and gloomy, underground Zeus, as Homer called him, sends a languishing feeling of hopelessness and doom to people, and locks souls in the Kingdom of the Dead with the help of a sword. Another ability of the god is the ability to revive the deceased, but he rarely uses this gift, therefore he considers it wrong to violate the laws of life.
With Hades, the kingdom of the dead was in charge of his wife Persephone, the goddess of fertility and the mistress of the underworld.
Myths say that the enamored Hades kidnapped Persephone when she was picking flowers in the meadow, arriving in a chariot with four horses.
Persephone's mother - the goddess of fertility Demeter - was seized by longing for her missing daughter, and famine came on the earth. Then Zeus decided that Persephone would spend two-thirds of the year with her mother, and one-third in the Kingdom of Hades.
What are the identification symbols of the god Hades? He sits in the middle of the main hall of his palace on a luxurious throne of pure gold. Nearby is his wife - always sad, beautiful Persephone. According to legend, this throne was made by Hermes - the god of blacksmithing, the patron of crafts, and a skilled craftsman. Hades is surrounded by viciously hissing Erinnia - the goddess of revenge, secret torment, and suffering. No one can hide from them, they will easily torture any person to death!
Another obligatory attribute of Hades is a magic helmet. It makes its owner invisible. An excellent armor was presented to the god by the Cyclopes when he rescued them from Tartarus. God never appears without his all-powerful tool - a two-pronged pitchfork. His scepter is decorated with a figure of a three-headed dog. God rides in a chariot, to which only horses black as night are harnessed. The natural element of the god of the dead is earth, dust that takes human bodies into its bowels. And the flowers symbolizing Hades are wild tulips. The ancient Greeks sacrificed black bulls to him.
