Abstract: We investigate topological properties of Julia sets of iterated elliptic functions of the form $ g = 1/\wp$, where $ \wp$ is the Weierstrass elliptic function, on triangular lattices. These functions can be parametrized by $ \mathbb{C} - \{0\}$, and they all have a superattracting fixed point at zero and three other distinct critical values. We prove that the Julia set of $ g$ is either Cantor or connected, and we obtain examples of each type.
