Why is a Greek mythological place, Hades, being mentioned in scripture, in both the Old and New Testaments, e.g. Revelation?

Hades - Encyclopedia Mythica
www.pantheon.org › Areas › Mythology › Europe › Greek mythology‎
Mar 3, 1997 - Hades is the lord of the dead and ruler of the nether world, which is referred to as the domain of Hades or, by transference, as Hades alone.

Revelation 1:17 - 18

ESV - 17 When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. But he laid his right hand on me, saying, "Fear not, I am the first and the last. 18 And the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.
