The main God was Jupiter or Jupiter, the superb, the greatest, thesavior. (Latin: Ivppiter Optimvs Maximvs Soter) He was the God ofthe sky and thunder. Storms were said to be Jupiter wageing war inheaven. Mars was the God of war Pluto or Dis was the the God of the Underworld But remember that the …popular 12 pagan gods worshipped by theRomans were superseded at the end of the Roman empire by otherreligious cults coming from the Middle east like Mithra andChristianity (MORE)
Zeus R oman counterpart!! god of the sky. Also known as Zeus, he was the king of gods, and the god of sky, weather, law, and fate
Poseidon is the god of earthquakes and is known as the"Earth-Shaker." He is also the god of the sea and horses. He isknown in Roman mythology as Neptune. Although Poseidon is a brother of Zeus, his primary role wascontrolling the seas. It would seem that "on land" he would needhis senior brother's p…ermission to be an "earth shaker". (MORE)

\nEssentially. The Romans developed and renamed most Greek mythological beings. Zeus became Jupiter and the like.
Yes! But they have different names because the Romans adopted all of the Greek gods into their religion but changed all of their names. Actaully Jupiter is Zeus's Roman equal
There are lots of Greek gods. I will name the main gods andgoddesses, called the Olympians. Aphrodite- love and beauty Apollo- sun, medicine, music, poetry, dance, math, herdsmen, andprophecy Ares- war Artemis- moon and hunting Athena- wisdom and battle strategies Demeter- agriculture Dionysus- wine… and parties Hades- realm of the dead Hephaestus- blacksmiths, craftsmen, and fire Hera- women, motherhood, and marriage Hermes- dreams, commerce, treaties, inventions, science, art,oratory, travelers, and thieves Hestia- hearth and home Poseidon- sea, horses, and earthquakes Zeus- sky, weather, and lightning (MORE)
Jason was not a god. He was a hero, famous for being the leader of the Argonauts in the quest for the golden fleece.
Gyprus seems to be quite unknown, unless he is Gaelic. Do you know anything about him?
he isn't a god. he was supposed to be a half god but he was 98.99 % god and 2.11% human. his mom was a goddess and tried to burn away his mortal half but his father saw her doing this and told her to never do it again. she burned away every mortal part but the heel of his left foot. he was a greek w…orrior. he died when a man shoot him in the heel.

Kind of. For every Greek god there is a Roman god but not the other way around there is no Greek god for Janus. Examples: Zues-Jupita, Ares-Mars Hera-Juno, Hestia-Vesta, Heaphestus-Vulcan. Even Greek titans have Roman counter parts examples: Uranus-Ouranus, Kronos-Saturn. Now the Roman counter pa…rts of the Greek gods are not exactly the same example: Ahrodite-Venus Aphrodite is the Greek goddes of bueaty and love, Venus is the Roman goddes of bueaty and sexaul love.

The Roman god Jupiter is the Greek god Zeus. The Roman goddess Venus is the Greek goddess Aphrodite. The Roman god Mars is Ares the Greek god.
They aren't EXACTLY identical but there are similarities. This is to be expected when the cultures grew up within such close proximity, where the experience of day to day life was virtually identical. Long before Greek civilization really came to prominence, the Mediterranean region was an amalgamat…ion of tribal states with more-or-less free exchange of ideas, goods and services, along with the occasional war, looting and pillaging. What we now know as the Greek Gods were themselves the result of incorporation of various tribal deities over centuries, including those of the tribal states that would later form Rome. The Greeks really didn't have them first, they were just more important culturally before the Romans. Then when the Roman empire began, they simply continued to worship the same Gods they had before, re-incorporating the occasional Greek myth, and re-establishing their own tribal names for the deities they already knew.

Probably Pan of course because Pan was the god of geology because rocks are connected to wilderness.
no, but he serves the same purpose in both religions, as well as a similar appearance
Hymns were sung and prayers were said, often in front of the image of a god. If a god answered one's prayers, one would often make a votive offering to the temple as a token of thanks. But pagan worship was much broader than modern Abrahamic worship. Libations were made at feasts by pouring a few d…rops of wine onto the ground as a symbolic offering to the gods. Sacrifices were made in the temples, much as the Jews did before the destruction of their Temple in 70 CE. Gods, especially Apollo, could be asked to foretell future events, using an oracle. The faithful were not expected to attend regular services the temples, but there were festive occasions when street parades allowed everyone to join in. (MORE)
Yes. After Rome conquered Greece, the Romans took the Greek gods and renamed them. well in a way yes but the Romans called them different names
That depends on YOUR beliefs and religion. I would go with what most people believe.
kinda sorta. the names of the gods were different, but they basically covered the same things. the different cultures adopted different gods from different cultures. maybe you social studies teacher will be able to answer this more satisfactorily.
Apollo was the god of the sun and music. He was the twin brother of Artemis. He was one of Zeus' many children.
To explain things that the Greeks and Romans did not understand at the time (lightning, earthquakes, etc.).
Artemis is the Greek goddess of wildlife and hunting. and Pan is the Greek god of nature
Because the Romans took the Greek gods but actually, the Romans had quite a few more gods than the Greeks. At first, the Romans found similarities between the major gods and the number of gods was about the same. However as the Roman empire expanded, they assimilated other cultures' gods into their …pantheon and the number mushroomed. (MORE)
there are more than can be listed but the most common are: Zues: ruler of gods, god of the sky, Poseidon: god of the ocean/sea, he also created horses and causes earthquakes Hades: god of the underworld, said to put precious gems in the earth Athena: goddess of wisdom and arts Aphrodit…e: goddess of beauty and love Ares: god of war and hate Hermes: god of hospitality, protectors of shepherds and travelers, was a messenger to the gods Apollo: sun god Artemis: goddess of hunting, animals, and weapons Eros: goddess of love Hera: queen of gods, goddess of married women Dionsyus: god of wine Demeter: god of growing plants those are the most common but there are tons more -ms, 14 (MORE)
Cronus or Kronos not Cronos was the Greek Titan not God of Harvest, and Time, he was also the King of the Titans.The correct term for Cronus's Roman Counterpart is Saturn.

I don't think Greek gods had gods, but if you mean toward each other as gods well, from myths and stuff like that, they tended to fight a lot and sometimes hated each other.
In Greek mythology, Daphne was a nymph who was turned into a laurel tree while attempting to escape the advances of the god Apollo. so, she wasn't really a greek god, but only a nymph.
The only Orpheus i know in greek mythology is the son of Apollo and the Muse Calliope, bu he was not a God
they are not the same. I guess the only thing that they have in common is the fact that they are both gods.
Yes, the Greek gods are basically the same as the Roman Gods. Their names are often in interchangeable in books such as the Iliad and the Odyssey.
He wasn't a god he was the king of crete I'm not totally sure but his name may have to do with the prefix in the word Minotaur, the beast that lived in the gigantic maze (labyrinth) he had built under his palace
OK, if I remember correctly, you have: Zeus, Posiedon, Hades, Ares, Athena, Hermes, Apollo, Aphrodite, Artemis, Demeter, Dionysus, Eros, Hephaestus, Hera, Hestia. Its one of those...
They are a different belief system, so differing powers, the Antoninus Liberalis said that when the Greek gods fled for Egypt, Apollon became a hawk [Horus], Hermes an ibis [Thoth], Ares became a fish, the lepidotus [Lepidotus or Onuris], Artemis a cat [Neith or Bastet], Dionysos took the shape of a… goat [Osiris or Arsaphes], Herakles a fawn, Hephaistos an ox [Ptah], and Leto a shrew mouse [Wadjet]. (MORE)
Adonis was not a god, he was a man who was admired by Aphrodite and Persephone. Since they kept fighting over him Zeus said that Adonis will spend four months with Aphrodite and four months with Persephone. The other four months he could choose to spend them with Aprodite or Persephone. He usually c…hose Aphrodite. (MORE)
They are Gods because they were born to divine parents. They always were Gods, or some became Gods through the process of apotheÅsis (most notably the Hero HÄraklÄs).
Leto is not a goddess in the traditional sense, though she was divine in nature. Her parents were Titans. She had no specific role or function in mythology aside from being the mother of Apollo and Artemis.
Echo was not a god she was a nymph that fell in love with Narcissus.
There is no Artems in Greek myth, it is likely Artemis - the Greek goddess - with a spelling mistake.
There isn't really one, but Zeus is the king of the gods, the chief of the gods. So I guess you could could say he is the god of the gods, even though he really isn't.
The same one in Greece but with different names. A few gods: Anthena- Minerva Ares- Mars Poseidon- Neptune
They aren't exactly the same, but neither are they completely different. There are similarities with certain Greek/Roman god and Jesus. However, those similarities and difference would take forever to explain.
Zeus - god of Sky and the King of gods. Hera - Zeus's wife and the Queen of gods. Aphrodite - goddess of love and beauty. Hephaestus - god of fire and forges. Ares - god of War. Athena - goddess of knowledge, wisdom, and war strategy. Poseidon - god of the sea, horses, and earthquakes. … Hades - god of the underworld. Demeter - goddess of plants. Apollo - god of the sun and music. Artemis - goddess of the hunting. Hestia - goddess of the hearth. Dionysus - god of wine and festivals. (MORE)
Yes they were named after Greek gods. They are the same gods same power but different names. The most important gods are named after planets
The Romans adopted Greek culture, so Rome pretty much had the same gods and goddesses but with slightly different qualities and different names. A few examples: Zeus - Julpiter or Jove Hera - Juno Apollo - Apollo Artemis - Diana Athena - Minerva Ares - Mars Apthrodite - Venus Hephae…stus - Vulcan Dionysus - Bacchus Hermes - Mercury Hades - Pluto, Orcas or Dis Pater Hestia - Vesta Demeter - Ceres Poseidon - Neptune (MORE)
Aropos was the meanest. She (yes she's got avery male name, but she is female) was one of the Fates. There werethree fates really. And her task was to cut off somebodies "threadof life" and sent there umbras to Hades. Her younger sister Lachesis is about equally evil. She measures the"thread of li…fe" in order for it to be cut. Zeus is the second meanest. Just like Aropos andLachesis he can kill everyone when he thinks it is fine, but he wasresponsible for less deaths. But he also raped quite a lot of sexygirls and sometimes plays with people like toys. (MORE)
Yes but not a very powerfull god. They have some powers but are not respected as their master. This is just a myth. They mostly use their powers to help respect their master but can be used for personal assistance.
Zues . God of the sky Symbols: . Thunderbolt . Eagle . Hades . God of the Underworld Sumbols: . Cerberus . The Helm of Darkness . Poseidon . God of the sea Symbols: . Trident . Dolphins . Horses . Sorry I only did the Big Three. I did my best.
Persephone wasn't specifically the goddess of anything. She was the personification of vegetation and came to represent the passing of the seasons, but she wasn't venerated in that regard, her mother Demeter was. When she was worshiped, it was usually alongside her mother.
