Hades (pron.: /ˈheɪdiːz/; from Greek ᾍδης (older form Ἀϝίδης), Hadēs, at first Ἅιδης, Haidēs or Άΐδης, Aidēs (Doric Ἀΐδας Aidas), meaning “the unseen”[1]) was once the ancient Greek god of the underworld. The genitive ᾍδου, Haidou, was once an elision to denote locality: “[the house/dominion] of Hades”. Ultimately, the nominative came to designate the abode of the dead. In Greek mythology, Hades is the oldest male child of Cronus and Rhea. In line with myth, he and his brothers Zeus and Poseidon defeated the Titans and claimed rulership over the cosmos, ruling the underworld, air, and sea, respectively; the solid earth, long the province of Gaia, was once to be had to all three similtaneously. Hades was once also known as “Plouton” (Greek: Πλούτων, gen.: Πλούτωνος, meaning “Wealthy One”), a name which the Romans Latinized as Pluto.[2] The Romans would associate Hades/Pluto with their own chthonic gods, Dis Pater and Orcus. The corresponding Etruscan god was once Aita. Symbols associated with him are the Helm of Darkness,[citation needed] the bident[citation needed] and the three-headed dog, Cerberus. The term hades in Christian theology (and in New Testament Greek) is parallel to Hebrew sheol (שאול, grave or dirt-pit), and refers back to the abode of the dead. The Christian concept of hell is more akin to and communicated by the Greek concept of Tartarus, a deep, gloomy a part of hades used as a dungeon of torment and suffering.
