A trident (pronounced/ˈtraɪdənt/), also called a leister or gig, is a three-pronged spear. It is used for spear fishing and was also a military weapon. Tridents are featured widely in mythical, historical and modern culture.
From the fishing origins, the trident is often associated with Poseidon, the god of the sea in Greek mythology. By hitting the earth with his trident, Poseidon created the horse and some water sources in Greece. The Roman Gods, such as Neptune (parallel to Poseidon) also used a trident as a staff, and created earthquakes and new bodies of water. When offended or ignored, he supposedly struck the ground with his trident and caused chaotic springs, earthquakes, drownings and shipwrecks. His trident symbolized power and authority.
As a weapon, the trident was prized for its long reach and ability to trap other long-weapons between prongs to disarm their wielder.
