Hmmmm, I did think tartarus was the grecian name because it's referenced with a lot of specifically griek charactuers such as tantalus and ciciphus (both also mentioned often by griek philosophy). Of course, i've only ever read translations of plato or epicurus and not the original so I might well just be picking up on the translators mistake.

I thought though "the realm of hades" was just a shortened way of saying "the place that hades ruled" rather than a specific name, though again, I might not have this correct.

The god Hades was indeed called Pluto in the Roman myths. I was saying that the actual realm of Hades was also often called Tartarus, though that may have been a Latin translation.

Hi Brian,
This was in Roman? Usually, Hades is referred in Roman as Pluto.
Best Regards,
Hayden

Hi Bryan,
Like I have mentioned a time or two before there are a number of
different translations out there.  It really depends on weather or not
the text was translated from Greek or Latain. That's why you end up
with names like Cerberus, Latain, and Kerberos Greek. Same creature
different name.

That must have been a Latin thing then since according to Circe in the
Odyssey they were Harpies...at least from the version I read in High
School.
They also called Hades Tartarus and of course Kerberos Cerberus.
