Neptune

Neptune (a ROMAN god) is the god of water and the sea[1] in Roman mythology, a brother of Jupiter and Pluto. He is analogous with but not identical to the god Poseidon of Greek mythology.

For a time he was paired with Salacia, the goddess of the salt water. At an early date (399 BC) he was identified with Poseidon, when the Sibylline books ordered a lectisternium to honour him with Apollo, Latona, Diana, Hercules and Mercury

In the earlier times it was the god Portunes or Fortunus who was thanked for naval victories, but Neptune supplanted him in this role by at least the first century BC when Sextus Pompeius called himself "son of Neptune." Neptune is associated as well with fresh water, as opposed to Oceanus, god of the world-ocean.
