the Influence of Greek Gods

The main 12 Greek Gods lived on mount Olympus. they were a family of 7 gods and 5 goddesses. their names are Zeus, Poseidon, Demeter, Hera, Hermes, Ares, Aphrodite, Athena, Hephaestus, Artemis, Apollo, Dionysus. They were worshiped with offerings of food and animals. Specifically Hades is the god of the underworld he has servants to control anything related to death.
