Epithets

Epithets are other names that a god is known by due to regions they were worshipped or/and divine associations. The Hellenic Theoi (Greek Gods) have many epithets except for Hestia who due to information about her cults being lost means she has no known epithets; the info we know is that she is a daughter of Chronos and Rhea, is the goddess of the hearth (one of the house gods), never married (one of the virgin gods), and that she gave up her place as an Olympian for Dionysus. 131 more words

The Hellenic Calendar is a Looney One

Meaning it is calculated by the phases of the moon and each month is approximately thirty days long. Most of the days of the month are dedicated to a certain God or task, which tells us that the ancient Greeks were consistently worshipping  and performing rituals within the household as well as outside as a larger community. 343 more words
