This list of Greek deities does not contain all of them, especially since different people thought different things about the gods and their jobs. Some deities share the same …job or are combined with others. Some also have different jobs depending on the version of Greek Myths. The categorization is also the best that these deities could be orgainzed into, considering how much they interact with one another and exchange roles.

That's very tough. There were so many of them. Try a website devoted to that kind of thing. Try searching 'eqyptian god pantheon ' . Ra was the head god. Other imp…ortant ones were Osiris, Isis, Seth, Horus, and Thoth. But there are many more!
Every town and city had its own temple or temples where the gods could be worshipped. Thebes was an important religious centre during much of ancient Egypt.
I don't know if you mean Greek Gods or what. But I can list them for you. Zeus - The King of the Gods. The big boss guy. Hera- Goddess of women, marriage and childbirth.

Associated with the moon. Aphrodite - Goddess of love. Hephaestus - God of fire and the forge. Dionysus - God of Wine. Hermes- God of flight, thieves, commerce and travelers. Messenger of the gods, he also helps souls to the underworld. Hestia-Goddess of hearth and home. Those are the main ones of Greek mythology, Don't know if that's what your looking for.
Zeus and his brothers divided the world between them. Hades got the underworld, Poseidon the sea and Zeus the sky (and more or less the earth). So Zeus was on Mt Olympus more …than his brothers and was the oldest male god present. So ...

Gods and Goddesses didn't really have homes...it is like our god...they could have been portrayed as living in the under world or the sky or in Nun's case, the waters of chaos… were his home because that is what he was the god of.
Assuming you're talking about Greek mythology, the main gods/goddesses are as follows: Zeus: King of the gods - Lightning / Sky god Hera: Zeus' main wife / Queen of the gods -… Marriage goddess Ares: God of war Apollo: Artemis' twin - Sun god Artemis: Apollo's twin - Moon / Virginity / The Hunt goddess Aphrodite: Love / Lust goddess Hermes: Messenger / Theif god Poseidon: Zeus' brother - Ocean god Hades: Zeus' brother - Underworld god Hephaestus: Unwanted child of Zeus and Hera: Tools god (working, creating, etc.) Demeter: Zeus' wife and sister (ew) - Harvest / Plants goddess Hestia: Hearth and Home goddess Dionysus: Wine god Persephone: Springtime goddess / Hades' wife Hope that helps :)
Many deities in Egypt have their origins in Sumeria and Babylon. The Garden of Eden was in Sumeria. In the original story, Enki the serpent God creates humanity and protects a…nd elevates them. If you were to ask the Sumerians and the Egyptians themselves, where do the gods come from, they would tell you they came from the stars.
It depends a bit on when you are talking about. In the earliest phase of Egyptian history (The Archaic and Old Kingdom periods between about 3000 and 2400 BCE) It was probably… the sun god Re (often written Ra). He is mentioned in some important Egyptian creation myths as the father of the other main gods. He was identified with the King and the cult of the sun. By the Middle Kingdom (about 2000-1800 BCE), it had changed to be the god Osiris who was god of the underworld and who had responsibility for judging the dead. Anyone who lived a good life and could answer his questions truthfully could enter the next world. This was different from the earlier worship of Ra which was largely focussed on the King. By the New Kingdom (about 1800-1000 BCE) the god Amun or Amun Ra had become the most important. His cult was based at the temple of Karnak near Luxor and the preisthood there was very powerful, owning a lot of land and property which was one reason why the god became so important. His importance is reflected in probably the best known ancient Egyptian king Tutankhamun whose name means living image of Amun.
If you are referring to Greek goddesses, Hera is the queen of the gods.
In Roman Empire
The gods and goddesses of ancient cultures; be it Egypt, Greek or Rome are the basis for our modern religions today. They helped shape culture and protect people from th…emselves when they were unruly. The ancient priests/priestresses where smart enough that they knew they needed these 'higher powers' to look to for guidance - so thus they were created.
Ra or Re - the sun god Hathor - goddess of love Bes - god of good things like family and good luck Anubis - god of mummification Bastet - the cat goddess Horus - god… of vengeance, the kings, and the sky Thoth - god of wisdom Set - god of evil and chaos Isis - goddess of motherhood and magic Osiris - god of the afterlife
