The Greek Times
The Chief and the Editor.
Well, the Greeks think that the Gods and Goddesses they worship, look and often act like humans, but they don't age and die. Because, every city-state honors a God or Goddess , who were thought to give its people special protection. The Greeks also believe that each God and Goddess had power over a particular area of life.
Different cities often worship the same deities, some with epithets that distinguished them and specified their local nature. Those who aren't satisfied by the public cult of Gods, could turn to various mystery religions. Certain fundamentals are sufficiently wide-spread in order for Greeks government & society to function : the Gods existed, they can influence human affairs, and they welcomed and responded to acts of piety and worship.
The religious practices of the Greeks extended beyond mainland Greece, to the islands and coasts of Lonia in Asia Minor, to Southern Italy, and to scattered Greek colonies in Western Mediterranean. Greek religion was tempered by Etruscan cult and belief.

The Trojan War!
The Trojan War is waged, according to some people, against the city of Troy in Asia Minor. The War is widely believed to be non-historical, along with the city itself. Preferring the dates given by Eratosthenes which roughly corresponds with, the burning of Troy. Greeks do think that the Trojan War is a historical event, that took place in the 13th or 12th century. The rumors about the war, were based on a actual struggle over control of the rich trade routes.
There is no certain evidence that Troy ever existed, still less that any events of the war ever took place. But apparently, German archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann, discovered that Troy was on the Mediterranean coast of modern day Turkey.
