Roman God: Vulcan pr Vulcanus - An early Italian or Roman fire god who, over time, became identified with the Greek Hephaestos, god of the forge. In his capacity as a smelter of metals, the Romans called him Vulcan Mulciber, and he was often seen as a more destructive counterpart of Vesta (goddess o…f the hearth), who represented a more positive force of fire. Romans believed that Vulcan's main forge lay beneath Mt. Etna, the great volcano on the island of Sicily. Greek God: Hephaestos: The Greek god of fire, the forge and the patron of craftsmen. Some claim he was the son of Zeus and Hera. ( Full Answer )
Most of the gods lived on Mount Olympus. Others had their own homes- for example, Hades lived in the Underworld.
Ares is the god of war. He was the son of Zeus and Hera, and was one of the many lovers of Aphrodite, who was married to Hephaestus. He liked war and bloodshed, but whenever he got hurt, he would run home to Olympus, where Zeus usually laughed and gave him salve to heal his injuries. Mars is the Rom…an counterpart of Ares.

Vulcan was the god of the forge of ancient Rome--his counterpart Hephaestus was the Greek god of the forge. His forge was below the ground, so when there were earthquakes or volcanic eruptions (coming from the name Vulcan), it was assumed Hephaestus was at his work.
Technically, it would be Hephaestus, but the actual word "volcano"comes from his Roman equivalent, Vulcan.
In Greek myth, Poseidon is the son of Cronus and of Rhea, the brother of Zeus, Hades, Hestia, Demeter and Hera. Poseidon was the god of the sea.
The goddess of love was Aphrodite, but her son, Eros (better known as Cupid) was the god of love.
It was originally Helios but over time he became merged with the god of music and it became Apollo.
The first gods were the children of Kronos, or Cronus and Rhea, or Rheia: Poseidon, Demeter, Hades, Hestia, Zeus, and Hera. Zeus: King of the gods and god of the sky Hera: Queen of the gods and goddess of marriage Poseidon: god of the sea Demeter: goddess of the harvest Hades: god of the underworld …Hestia: goddess of the hearth. Hestia was an original Olympian, but gave her seat up to a newcomer, Dionysus, god of wine. She now tends the hearth in Olympus. Te first gods were Uranus and Gaia ( Full Answer )

Neptune is the god of water.. Correction: . Neptune is the Roman equivalent of the Greek god Poseidon, god of the seas. When Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon cast lots for the divisions of earth, Poseidon got the Sea. However, in addition to Poseidon, there was also Ocean, god of the river encircling t…he earth. His daughters, the Oceanids, were the nymphs of the River Ocean, and his sons were lords of all the rivers of earth. There was one other (significant) "Water god," Nereus, god of the Mediterranean Sea, and thus very important to the Greeks. In summary:. Poseidon. Olympian, lord of the Mediterannean and Euxine/Black Sea.. Ocean. Titan, god of the river Ocean.. Nereus. Lesser god of the Mediterranean Sea, father of the Nereids (Sea nypmhs). ( Full Answer )

Jason - of Argonauts fame . Theseus - king of Athens who killed the Minotaur with a magic sword . Oedipus - accidentally killed his father and slept with his mother .

There was no god of time. There was a titan of time, though. He was Kronos.
Khronos [in Greek: Î§ÏÏÎ½Î¿Ï= time] was the Protogenos (primeval god) of time, a divinity who emerged self-formed at the beginning of creation in the Orphic cosmogonies. Khronos was imagined as an incorporeal god, serpentine in form, with three heads--that of a man, a bull, and a lio…n. He and his consort, serpentine Anange (Inevitability), circled the primal world-egg in their coils and split it apart to form the ordered universe of earth, sea and sky. Khronos and Anange continued to circle the cosmos after creation-their passage driving the circling of heaven and the eternal passage of time. The figure of Khronos was essentially a cosmological doubling of the Titan Kronos . ( Full Answer )

No, actually it's spelled and said Kronos of Cronus. Answer 2: No, sorry, that is all wrong. Cratos ("strength") is the personification of strength and power. He is the brother of Nike, Zelus and Bia. Like his other siblings, he is a constant companion of Zeus.

I'll name a few. First we have the twelve Olympian gods. Hephaestus, Aphrodite, Hermes, Dionysus, Apollo, Artemis, Hera, Athena, Ares, and the last three, aka the big three - Zeus, Poseidon, & Hades. Those are the 12 most comonly known Greek gods and godesses of mythology.

Zeus, king of the gods, the god of sky and weather, law, order and fate.
That depends on the volcano. When Zeus toppled Cronos from power he placed many of "the hundred handed ones" on various mountains and volcanos, for when Cronos' minions and brothers - the titans - went to climb said mountains the hundred handed ones threw rocks down to them, thousands upon thousan…ds of rocks and boulders, which scared and scattered the titans making them easier to capture. Or of course when the Greek goddess Gaia, goddess of earth, gets mad and angry the earth reflects her temper with earthquakes and volcano's. Hope thats of some help...? ( Full Answer )

Midas was never a greek god. He was a friend of Dionysus who was granted a wish. His name is the same in Roman and Greek mythology.
It is probably Zeus. King of the gods and ruler of Mount Olympus; god of the sky and thunder. Youngest child of the Titans Cronus and Rhea. Brother and husband of Hera, although he had many lovers.
In Greek mythology Apollo was attributed as the god of the sun but was also known for variably being the god of music, light, poetry, plague, and oracles.
The Greek gods didn't have symbols the way you are probably thinking of them. There is always a certain amount of iconography associated with religion, but they didn't have anything like the "Cross" or "Star of David" that applied to specific gods. Instead, the gods had items that were generally ass…ociated when them - such as the peacock to Hera, or the Laurel to Apollo. ( Full Answer )
