Title: Greek Gods and Goddesses


1
Greek Gods and Goddesses
  • By Adon Shapiro

2
Greek Gods and Goddesses
  • Residing on Mt. Olympus are the Greek gods.
    There are never more than twelve at one time and
    there are a few variable gods.

3
Greek Gods and Goddesses
  • Here is a table of all the Greek gods and
    goddesses, in no particular order, to ever be
    considered Olympians.

4

  • King of the Gods.
  • God of the sea and brother of Zeus.

5
Hera Athena
  • Queen of the gods. Wife of Zeus.
  • Goddess of wisdom and war.

6
Artemis Apollo
  • Goddess of the hunt and the moon. Apollos
    sister.
  • God of the sun, poetry, music, and medicine.

7

10
Demeter Dionysus
  • Goddess of grain and agriculture.
  • God of wine, vegetation, and theatre.

11
Where were they worshipped?
  • The Greek gods were worshipped in temples all
    throughout Greece. There were oracles who
    (supposedly) saw into the future and delivered
    messages from the gods.

Conclusions
  • As you can see the ancient Greeks had a very
    interesting and complex culture which they
    believed in wholeheartedly. I had a lot of fun
    researching Greek mythology and I would do it
    again more extensively anytime.
