Safari Ltd. – Mythical Realms – Gold Areion
The Greek gods could take many forms, and Poseidon, god of the sea, once took the form of a horse and fathered Areion—a wild, winged horse blessed with great speed. Few could tame the steed enough to ride it, although Hercules was purported to have done so. Poseidon’s chariot might still be seen skirting the waves in a wild Mediterranean storm, with Areion at the end of the reins, wings pumping furiously. The majestic horse fears neither wave nor gale, and only the strong hand of the sea god can hold the steed in check.
