Rev. 1:18

I have found the recent discussions on the Revelation texts interesting.
I have a few questions of my own.

In Rev. 1:18 Jesus is said to have TAS KLEIS TOU THANATOU AND TOU
HAIDOU. My first question has reference to TOU HAIDOU.

Is there any biblical(Greek, LXX)/extra-biblical writings which would
confirm the view that SHEOL and HADES are to be equated?

Is there anything about the construction here which would equate

Is there some literary connection between KLEIS and HAIDOU?
