How many Greek gods and goddesses are there altogether?

there are 12 main Greek gods/goddesses. they sit on a council and make all the decisions. Zeus is the head of this council. there are many other minor gods/goddesses, but they are not very important. think of them like patron saints. some are more important than others. the patron saint of love is important, but the patron saint of taxi drivers is not as important. :-) (and yes, there is actually a patron saint of taxi drivers) the same is true of the minor Greek gods/goddesses. concentrate on the council of 12, though, for all your mythological research. i doubt you will find much, if anything, on the minor gods.
