How is Dionysus similar to Demeter?
Demeter is similar to dionysus because they both are goddesses of crops and harvesting. they control what grows and when. therefor dionysus is similar to Demeter
I believe they are different due to the fact that they are able to grow things. Demeter as the goddess of the harvest makes the crops grow, while Dionysus seems to supply the growth of grapes and such similar plants. In a sense, Demeter makes the grains and vegetables that supply us with food like bread, and Dionysus makes the fruits that supply us with juices and wines and other drinks.
Olympians: Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Ares, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Hephaestus, Aphrodite, Hermes and Dionysus. Some people will say Hades in place of Demeter and Hestia in place of Dionysus, but the story of Dionysus' birth clearly states Hestia gave up her throne to Dionysus to prevent war. And some people will say Demeter resides with Persephone on Earth as Hades is with his brothers. Hades is a very major character.
