The ancient Greek Gods and Goddess contain a wealth of stories and legends, wrapped in Myths which typically provide a story with a morale code designed to influence the reader into behaviour as fitting Greek culture of the era.
In this article, we look at Arion and the myths and legends surrounding Arion, Arion relationship to and with other Greek Gods and Goddess and key events and stories which relate to ancient astrology and the changing seasons.
Arion [lofty native] was an immortal black stallion, which was sired either by Poseidon (Neptune by some, but they are the same god) and Demeter, or simply sprang from the earth, Gaia, or by Zephyrus (the north wind and a harpy) the horse had wings and possessed the power of speech. Arion was given to Adrastus by Heracles.
