Exercise 1.3 Olympians and Beyond

The Greeks and Romans believed in polytheism, or many gods. When they encountered a god from another culture, they might identify it as one of their own, then absorb the stories and characteristics of that new god with the old. Over time, the Roman and Greek gods were thought to be the same and ruled over the same areas of nature, or domain. As you learn more about each god, use hints throughout this book to fill in each domain.
