Hades on a red-figure Apulian vase made in the 4th century BC Modern, Clash of the Titans Hades
Pre 476 A.D Modern I choose this image because it shows Hades attributes and powers and is the complete opposite of what people usually depict Hades. In the picture Hades is surrounded by a black cloud with sparks shooting out which is usually not a power Hades has. Hades looks like someone did something to make him furious and to summon the dark cloud .Hades is also shown mid- air while looking down on someone or something. Therefore I choose this image because it was the opposite way the Greeks and Romans depicted Hades I choose this image because it shows where he usually is and some of his attributes that the Greeks and Romans gave him. .In the picture Hades is sitting on a chair surrounded by marble columns giving a command to someone which shows that he is the king of the underworld. Also Hades Is holding the scepter that also symbolizes Hades. I choose this picture because it showed Hade's attributes and the way Greeks and Romans depicted him.
