Interesting information

    • Most of the resemblance between the Romans and the Greeks were made evident in the superior “Gods” the only real difference between them was the names. For example with Zeus or also known as Jupiter in the roman religion, they basically were the same just with different names also resembled in a different visual perspective.
    • Also the only Main sources that have survived is Pro- Athenian and may have a large amount of Bias.

Interesting information

  • All of the planets and most of the moons in the solar system are also named after Greek mythological characters, although the planets have been given Roman versions of the Greek names.

    • Sources
  • Any history of ancient Greece requires a cautionary note on sources. Those Greek historians and political writers whose works have survived, notably Herodotus, Xenophon, Plato and Aristotle, were mostly either Athenians or pro-Athenians.
