The ancient Greeks and Romans believed the seahorse was an attribute to the sea god Neptune/Poseidon; a symbol of strength and power. It was believed responsible for providing safe passage and protection for the souls of deceased sailors as they traveled to their destination in their after-life. Ancient Chinese cultures believed they were a type of sea dragon and shared the belief with European sailors that they were a good luck charm.
