The Bident


It is the first time I learned of the name of Hades' weapon.  I've always kind of called it the pitchfork or the two-pronged thing or (I know this is wrong--) "the scythe".  Apparently, it's called the bident.  Interesting trivia is the three major Gods, Zeus, Hades and Poseidon, have different number of prongs in their weapons.  Zeus has the thunderbolt which sort of seems like a one-pronged weapon, Hades has the bident (two prongs) and Poseidon has the trident (three prongs).  Kind of interesting; at least to me.  :)

And of course, if you want to see my comic strip with Zeus and his thunderbolt, you may view it here: http://www.homemadecomicstrips.com/2017/01/wheres-my-thunderbolt.html .
