Zeus's Thunderbolt

Zeus was the head of the Greek Olympian pantheon. He was king of gods and men. He is often depicted with thunderbolts in his capacity as lord of the winds, clouds rain and thunder. He hurled thunderbolts at those who displeased him. Thunderbolts were also recognised as a symbol of masculinity and virility.
