What is the Greek god Hades' symbol?
ive found that the sceptra and the cornucopia are symbols for him which is odd cuz the cornucopia is like a thanks giving thing His symbols were a helmet made of dogskin (called the Helmet of Darkness, that made the wearer invisible), and his 3 headed doggy Cerberus. In Roman times He is also associated with money and silver and being rich.

In Greek mythology, Hades is the ruler of the Underworld. Hissymbols include the cypress, the scepter, and Cerberus thethree-headed dog.
Hade's symbol is his Helm of Darkness.
Healm of Darkness
He had many, the most recognizable today are; Cerberus The Helm of Darkness Keys to Hades
Well there are many symbols for the Lord of the Dead, the main one would have to be his Helm of Darkness made by the Cyclops. It's power is as great as or greater then Poseido…n's triedent or Zeus's thunderbolts because it actually let him become darkness. He can make fear so intense it can stop your heart.
He wanted to get revenge on the Titans who came before the Greek gods. He was Zeus and Poseidon brother but he was jealous that he was not the king of the gods and sky
Gaia (Earth) alone bore Ouranus (Sky) and from their union was Cronus and Rhea who then had Hades, the usual thought is that Hades had no children, but the Furies are said to …be their daughters, so too is Zagreus who is reincarnated as Dionysus. Melinoe goddess of those offerings to the ghosts of the dead, Macaria too is said to be such as a goddess of blessed death, referring to either her mercy or the Islands of the Blessed in the Underworld.
Hades does not venture very often from the Underworld where he rules, he had kidnapped Persephone as his wife but was not often interested in the affairs of mortals or events …upon earth.
The powers of Hades are as follows: he rules over the dead with absolute power, he has control of the furies, he has a helmet that can make him invisible, he can get the god o…f sleep who lives in the underworld to give others dreams, he can make a person wealthy or poor, he also fears nothing, and is believed to have a close friendship with the Fates which would ensure good luck. He would also decide weather your soul went to Tartarus, the Asphodel Medows, Elysium, or the Isles of the Blessed.
His wife Persephone lives with him for half of the year in the Underworld.
The god Hades is pronounced: 'hay-dees'.
Hades is important because he is the son of the titan of time. He is part of the BIG THREE his brothers are Zeus and Poseidon. He is the god of the underworld and death.
The Keys of Hades, and the Helm of Darkness.
His symbol is a cap or helmet that made the person wearing it invisible,
