"Neptune was also considered the legendary progenitor god of a Latin stock, the Faliscans,
who called themselves Neptunia proles. In this respect he was the equivalent of Mars, Janus,
Saturn and even Jupiter among Latin tribes. Salacia would represent the virile force of Neptune."
" probably from PIE root *nebh- "cloud" (cf. Latin nebula "fog, mist, cloud;" see nebula),
via a sense of "moist, wet."
late 14c., "a musical sound, a succession of musical notes," unexplained variant of tone.
Meaning "state of being in proper pitch" is from mid-15c.
c.1300, "a song, music, instrumental music; a musical note,"
from Latin nota "letter, character, note," originally "a mark, sign, means of recognition,"
which is perhaps related to notus, past participle of noscere (Old Latin *gnoscere) "to know" (see know).
1610s, from French harpon, from Old French harpon "cramp iron, clamp, clasp"
(described as a mason's tool for fastening stones together), from harper "to grapple, grasp,"
possibly of Germanic origin, or from Latin harpa- "hook" (cf. harpagonem "grappling hook,"
from Greek *harpagon, related to harpe "sickle"). Earlier harping-iron (mid-15c.).
Sense and spelling perhaps influenced by Dutch (cf. Middle Dutch harpoen) or Basque,
the language of the first whaling peoples,
who often accompanied English sailors on their early expeditions. Also see -oon.
the Tryzub (Ukrainian: Тризуб, "trident") is the national coat of arms of Ukraine, featuring the same colors found on the Ukrainian flag; a blue shield with yellow trident
There is no sure and definite interpretation of the symbol; however, most historians agree that it most probably depicts a stylized falcon which according to the Slavic mythology was the Primary god (Pershoboh). In Christianity, a descending falcon, just as dove (with head downwards, as in case of Ukraine´s trident) also symbolizes the Holy Spirit.
For the majority of Christians, the Holy Spirit (prior English language usage: the Holy Ghost from Old English gast, "spirit") is the third person of the Holy Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and is Almighty God. The Holy Spirit is seen by most Christians as one person of the Triune God, who revealed His Holy Name, YHWH, to His people Israel, sent His eternally begotten son Jesus to save them from their sins, and sent the Holy Spirit to sanctify and give life to His Church. The Triune God manifests as three persons (Greek hypostases), in one divine being (Greek: Ousia), called the Godhead, the Divine Essence of God.
The worship of the Holy Spirit, its central doctrine, was promoted by Joachim of Fiore, a millenarian prophet who postulated the beginning of a third age, based on his interpretation of the Book of Revelation. This third age would be governed by the Holy Spirit and would represent a monastic governance in which the hierarchy of the Church would be unnecessary and infidels would unite with Christians.
In Chinese history and culture, possession of one or more ancient dings is often associated with power and dominion over the land. Therefore, the ding is often used as an implicit symbolism for power. The term "inquiring of the ding" (Chinese: 问鼎; pinyin: wèn dǐng) is often used interchangeably with the quest for power.
An oculus, plural oculi, from Latin oculus: eye, denotes a circular opening in the centre of a dome or in a wall. Originating in Antiquity, it is a feature of Byzantine and Neoclassical architecture. It is also known as an œil de boeuf from the French, or simply a "bull's-eye".
The lyre (Greek: λύρα) is a string instrument known for its use in Greek classical antiquity and later. The word comes from the Greek "λύρα" (lyra) and the earliest reference to the word is the Mycenaean Greek ru-ra-ta-e, meaning "lyrists", written in Linear B syllabic script.
Arion[pronunciation?](Ancient Greek: Ἀρίων) was a kitharode in ancient Greece, a Dionysiac poet credited with inventing the dithyramb: "As a literary composition for chorus dithyramb was the creation of Arion of Corinth,"
A citharede (Greek: κιθαροιδός, Latin: citharoedus; British English citharoede) or, in modern usage, citharist, refers to a classical Greek professional performer (singer) of the cithara (or sometimes lyre), as one who used the cithara to accompany their singing. Famous citharedes included Terpander and Arion.
In Greek mythology, Arion or Areion (Ancient Greek: 'Ἀρίων, Ἀρείων, gen.: Ἀρίωνος, Ἀρείωνος) is a divinely-bred, extremely swift immortal horse which, according to the Latin poet Sextus Propertius, was endowed with speech.
Arion's siring by Poseidon in stallion form vary by author: according to the Pseudo-Apollodorus, the horse was foaled by Demeter while she was "in the likeness of a Fury"; Pausanias reported that, according to Antimachus, the horse was the foal of Gaia, the Earth, herself. In the Epic Cycle Arion was mounted most notably by Adrastus, king of Argos.
On the subject of Arion, Homer said in the Iliad:
"... there is no man that shall catch thee by a burst of speed, neither pass thee by, nay, not though in pursuit he were driving goodly Arion, the swift horse of Adrastus, that was of heavenly stock ...”
Yam was the god of the sea, and became popular in the Ancient Egyptian times. Yam, from the Canaanite word Yam, (Hebrew ים) meaning "Sea", also written "Yaw", is one name of the Ugaritic god of Rivers and Sea.
Yam is the deity of the primordial chaos and represents the power of the sea untamed and raging; he is seen as ruling storms and the disasters they wreak. The gods cast out Yam from the heavenly mountain Sappan (modern Jebel Aqra; "Sappan" is cognate to Tsephon. The seven-headed dragon Lotan is associated closely with him and the serpent is frequently used to describe him. He is the Canaanite equivalent of the Sumerian Tiamat, the primordial mother goddess.
The dove and olive branch are found together in the account of Noah's ark in the Bible, and were used symbolically by Jews and early Christians, and eventually were used as a secular peace symbol. This was popularized by Pablo Picasso in 1949 and became widely used in the post-World War II peace movement. In the 20th century, the "peace sign," as it is commonly known today, was originally designed in the late 1950s as the logo for the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament; later it was adopted more widely by anti-war activists in the United States and elsewhere. The V hand signal and the peace flag also became international peace symbols.
Tinia (also Tin, Tinh, Tins or Tina) was the god of the sky and the highest god in Etruscan mythology, equivalent to the Roman Jupiter and the Greek Zeus. He was the husband of Thalna or Uni and the father of Hercle.

The problem with Wikipedia is not that it exists, but that it has become the cornerstone for researchers scanning the Internet for information and blindly copying from Wikipedia entries, wrongfully assuming that they are neutral and correct.
It has become the "Ministry of Information", the "one-stop information shop" of the Internet, but no one should fall for the "Newspeak" of a title. Wikipedia has made the task for those seeding disinformation and removing dissenting views easier, more direct and even more anonymous. °

Modern Western culture is based on denying objective truth and erecting a false reality in its place. ~ Henry Makow Ph.D.
"Ah, experience has conditioned you into thinking that all hearts are red and all spades are black because their shapes are similar. It's easier for your mind to interpret them based on that past experience instead of being open to the idea they could be different. We see what we expect to see, not necessarily what's really there. Children who have never played cards always pass this test.
Makes you wonder how many other things are right in front of you - sights, sounds, smells that you can't experience because you've been conditioned not to. The good news is, if we do the test again, you'll pass. Once you're aware that there can be black hearts and red spades you'll be able to perceive them. Your brain's wiring is like the interstate highway system. It's easier to go from one well-traveled place to another. But the places in between, off the highway, even though they're there, most people zip right past them."

There's so much fail in this. You are mixing things up in Greco-Roman myths. I don't know where you get that Poseidon/Neptune was a "Earth-Sky deity", but that's not right.
Neptune is not the same as Atlas, Uranus, Orion, and Venus; each of these are distinct beings and came about in different manners.
I'll post more later, but I have to head to class.
The name Orion is from Greek ourios, 'urine'. The story goes that Hyrieus of Boeotia was granted a wish in reward for his hospitality to the gods Zeus (Jupiter), Poseidon (Neptune) and Hermes (Mercury), who were visitors in disguise. Hyrieus asked for a son. The gods responded by urinating on a bull's hide and burying it in the earth which produced a child nine months later. He was named Orion or Ourion (of ouria), urine, after this event.
Fortis and Fortissimus, were Roman titles for Orion [Allen, Star Names] and these words are related to the Germanic word for mountain
The Greek word for urine, ouron (or ourion), comes from the Indo-European root *wers-2 "To rain, drip" (see above). The English word 'war' comes from the Indo-European root *wers-1 "To confuse, mix up".
Allen [Star Names, below] says "Plautus, Varro, and others called the constellation of Orion Jugula and Jugulae, the Joined, referring to the umeri (shoulder), the two bright stars in the shoulders, as if connected by the jugulum, or collar-bone.
Derivatives: yoke, jug-, jugate, jugular, jugum, conjugate, subjugate, zygo-, zygote, jostle, joust, adjust, join, joint, conjugal, conjunct, yoga.
These etymologies should make this 'Mighty Hunter', this 'Giant', the zygote; the product of the conjunction of the sperm and egg cells in conception. A zygote is the original cell that comes to creation and will survive in this state for four days before dividing into a blastiocyst. In the micro realm a zygote cell would appear gigantic compared to other cells.
Orion had a number of titles signifying the word 'giant': The Jews called Orion Gibbor, the Giant. "The Syrians knew Orion as Gabbara; the Arabians as Al Jabbar, both signifying 'the Giant', Gigas, giant, Greek title for Orion with Ptolemy, — and in Latin days occasionally Gigas; the Arabian word gradually being turned into Algebra (the prefix al- means 'the'), Algebaro, and, especially in poetry, Algebar, which Chilmead gave as Algibbar (Al Gibbar, 'the giant')". Our words giant and gigantic, and the word giga- (prefix meaning a billion) come from Latin gagas, Greek gigas.
Algebra, another Arabic title for Orion, that because of the sound similarity should relate to that branch of mathematics, algebra from Arabic al-jabr, from al-, the, + jabr, meaning to join broken bones, to set bones, [a joint (from *yeug-) is the location at which two or more bones make contact] from Semitic *gpr, and related to the name Gabriel; Gabriel, Jibril or Jibrail, 'Fortitudo Dei', 'force from God' said to Mary
Algebra from Arabic al-jabr, from al-, the, + jabr, meaning to join broken bones, to set bones. Orion is identified with Egyptian Osiris who was cut up into pieces by Set and his body was reassembled by Isis.
Sahu, Sah, was an ancient Egyptian title for Orion. Allen [Star Names] says that in Egypt, Orion in the great Ramesseum of Thebes about 3285 B.C. was known as Sahu.
Massey says that the word 'Sahu' means 'to incorporate' [join]. "Then as a Sahu he is reincorporated in a spiritual body, and as a Khu he is invested with the robe of light and glory" . Sahu = The phantom body, psychic identity of self boundaries .
The god Sah, or Sahu, is personified in the constellation of Orion and his consort, Sopdet (or Greek name Sothis), is personified in the adjacent constellation, Canis Major, or its alpha star Sirius (the 'dog star'). These two constellations came to be viewed as manifestations of Osiris and Isis. In a fourth century B.C. papyrus, Isis asserts that she is Sothis, who will unswervingly follow Osiris in his manifestation as Orion in heaven . The deceased king is said to enter the sky "In the name of the Dweller in Orion, with a season in the sky and a season on earth"
"Scorpius, because of its position, is one of the two ‘gateways’ to the Milky Way, the other being the opposite constellation of Orion. The Scorpion men attacked Osiris in Egyptian legend, and the Scorpions sting killed Orion in Greek myth." .
The Greeks (and Romans) associated Dionysus with Osiris, and Osiris was associated with Orion by the Egyptians.
"For the Greeks ... call a son hyios from hydor (water) and hysai (to rain), and Dionysus Hyes as being the lord of moist nature [all these words come from the same root as Hyades], since he is none other than Osiris. And indeed Hellanicus seems to have heard Osiris pronounced Hysiris by the priests...
Catullus transcribed Oarion from Pindar, shortened to Arion, and sometimes changed to Aorion; but the much later Argion, attributed to Firmicus, was for Procyon, probably from Argos, the faithful dog of Ulixes.
Riccioli cited Baculus Jacobi, which became in popular English speech Jacob's Rod or Staff, — the German Jakob Stab, — from the tradition given by Eusebius that Israel was an astrologer, as, indeed, he doubtless was; and some had it Peter's Staff. Similarly, it was the Norse Fiskikallar, or Staff; the Scandinavian Frigge Rok, Frigg's, or Freya's, Distaff, — in West Gothland Frigge Rakken, — and Maria Rok, Mary's Distaff; in Schleswig, Peri-pik. In Lapland it was altered to Kalevan Miekka, Kaleva's Sword, or still more changed to Niallar, a Tavern; while the Greenlanders had a very different figure here, — Siktut, the Seal-hunters, bewildered when lost at sea, and transferred together to the sky.
Page 316] Seamen have called it the Golden Yard-arm; tradesmen, the L, or Ell, the Ell and Yard, the Yard-stick, and the Yard-wand, as occupying 3° between the outer stars, — the Elwand of Gavin Douglas; Catholics, Our Lady's Wand; and the husbandmen of France and along the Rhine, Rateau, the Rake. In Upper Germany it has been the Three Mowers; and it is often the Magi, the Three Kings, the Three Marys, or simply the Three Stars,
