Notes about ADDucation Greek goddesses A to Z list:
- This list is primarily compiled from the works of Hesiod (Theogony c700 BC) and Homer (Iliad and Odyssey 760-710 BC) because these authority sources are credited by ancient authors with establishing Greek religious customs. We have also referenced other sources, including later Roman sources. Please refer to ADDucation’s Mega list of Greek Gods and Goddesses which also includes some semi-divine (demi-gods) and mortals for clarity and completeness.
- Latin spellings have been used throughout instead of the original Greek or Transliteration spellings, although some have been included for clarity.
