Zeus was the sky and thunder god in ancient Greek Religion, who ruled as King of the Gods of Mount Olympus. His name is cognate with the first element of his Roman equivalent Jupiter. Zeus is the child of Cronus and Rhea, the youngest of his siblings to be born, though sometimes reckoned the eldest as the others required disgorging from Cronus’s stomach. In most traditions, he is married to Hera, by whom he is usually said to have fathered Ares, Hebe, and Hephaestus. At the Oracle of Dodona, his consort was said to be Dione, by whom the Iliad states that he fathered Aphrodite. A Thunderbolt or Lightning Bolt is a symbolic representation of lightning when accompanied by a loud thunderclap. In Indo-European mythology, the thunderbolt was identified with the “Sky Father“, this association is also found in later Hellenic representations of Zeus and Vedic descriptions of the vajra wielded by the God Indra. It may have been a symbol of cosmic order, as expressed in the fragment from Heraclitus describing “the Thunderbolt that steers the course of all things“. In its original usage the word may also have been a description of the consequences of a close approach between 2 planetary cosmic bodies, as Plato suggested in Timaeus, or, according to Victor Clube, meteors, though this is not currently the case.

As a divine manifestation the Thunderbolt has been a powerful symbol throughout history, and has appeared in many mythologies. Drawing from this powerful association, the thunderbolt is often found in military symbolism and semiotic representations of electricity. Zeus’s Lightning Bolt (Thunderbolt or Master Bolt) is the signature weapon and symbol of power for the Olympian God of Thunder, Zeus. It is said to be the most powerful and feared weapon on Earth and in the Heavens. It was created for him by the Cyclopes and Hecatoncheires in Tartaros, in conjunction with Poseidon’s Trident and Hades’ Helm of Darkness to defeat the Titans. During the Titanomachy, when Zeus was at war against Cronus and the Titans, he released his brothers, Hades and Poseidon, along with the Cyclops and Hecatoncheires. In turn, the Cyclopes gave Zeus the thunderbolt, a weapon of lightning that was imbued with the power over the sky. The thunderbolt became a popular symbol of Zeus and continues to be today. Zeus and Zeus alone uses the Thunderbolt (unlike the Trident which is used not only by Poseidon, Amphitrite and Triton). While Typhon and Zeus are doing battle, Zeus throws a lightning bolt at Typhon which threw him to a mountain. Zeus, quickly regaining strength, tossed one hundred Lightning Bolts at Typhon, killing him. He then threw his remains into Tartatus. God Zeus Holding Thunderbolt Statue measures: 10.8 inches / 27.5 cm x 8 inches / 20.5 cm x 14 inches / 35.5 cm.
