What is the Greek god Hades' symbol?
ive found that the sceptra and the cornucopia are symbols for him which is odd cuz the cornucopia is like a thanks giving thing His symbols were a helmet made of dogskin (called the Helmet of Darkness, that made the wearer invisible), and his 3 headed doggy Cerberus. In Roman times He is also associated with money and silver and being rich.

Thanks for the feedback!
Elis was the only city to build a Hades temple.
This is a hard question. Hades was often portrayed a cold hearted god of death. However some say he was hero because although he was the god of the underworld he wasn't the go…d of death - Thanatos was. Hades was in charge of seeing over the delivery of newly deceased souls to their proper places. If you were bad, you'd go to Tartarus - Hell. If you were good you'd go to paradise. Hades was in charge of that, without him our souls would never find rest - in Greek mythology Bare in mind it is commonly said Hades was forced to become the god of the underworld as punishment by his brother Zeus. So Hades is mostly considered an anti-hero. But others think different Hope this helps.
The god Hades is pronounced: 'hay-dees'.
He controlled the dead in the Underworld
The screech-owl; a bird of ill omen, it's myth is that Ascalaphus who managed the orchards of Hades reported to Hades that Persephone had tasted of the pomegranate seed: Demet…er turned him into the screech-owl.
Hades lived in the Underworld. The Underworld is split into three parts, The Fields of Asphodel, Elysium, and Tartarus. The Fields of Asphodel were reserved to people who were… like you or me, neither good nor bad. Just imagine a gray cornfield...that's what Asphodel is. Elysium was reserved for heroes and such, while Tartarus was the exact opposite. It was pretty much the Greek equivalent of hell.
Hades is important because he is the son of the titan of time. He is part of the BIG THREE his brothers are Zeus and Poseidon. He is the god of the underworld and death.
Hades was a multifaceted god. Originally, Hades was simply the name of the Underworld itself, but was later personified through the god Plouton (who then became known as Hades…). Hades represented not just the Lord of the Dead, but also the god of wealth and riches, which were taken from beneath the earth. He was the second son of Kronos and Rhea, but is not an Olympian. He had few shrines, and there are only a few myths about him. He ruled the underworld completely, though, and was adamant about those entering never leaving again (with some notable exceptions). He has given a helmet by Hephaestos that made him invisible (which he lent to Perseus for his quest to slay Medusa) His symbols were the three headed dog, the Narcissus Lily, the Cypress Tree, the key to Hades. His throne was made of Ebony. Only black animals were sacrificed to him, and when they prayed to him, Greeks beat their hands on the ground. Any blood from a sacrifice had to be allowed to drip into a cleft or pit, and the priest has to avert his eyes.
After Hades was banished from Olympus after trying to overpower and betray his brothers, Zeus and Posiedon, Hades responsibility was to stay in the Underworld (Hell) and direc…t died peoples souls to where they should be. He was in control of Hell basically.
Hades was born before time was being recorded.
Hades is often represented by a black bull. He also owns a three headed dog named Cerberus.
Hades, like all Olympians, was immortal. He could not die. He could be wounded or imprisoned, but he could not die. The only reason he lived in the Underworld was because when… Zeus, Poseidon and Hades split their kingdoms up, he got the Underworld.
Ruler of the Underworld, keeping the ghosts of the dead from ascending back to earth and kidnapping Persephone.
He wore the helmet of darkness which he got crafted for him by the titans during the war against Cronus.
Hades is the enemy of all life, gods, and men. Since nothing will sway him, he is rarely worshiped. Lately a bunch of crazy Englishmen are instituting festivals to severa…l antique gods, but that is a different story.
