Hellenic Pantheon

Author: Obsidian

The blending of Latin with Hellenic elements was extreme, and produced a long series of Divinities with virtually identical Attributes, and two names, a Latin one and a Greek one.

In general, it can be assumed that any Hellenic Deity was acknowledged and revered by Romans as well.
