How many Gods/Goddesses are there?

Also, can wewe please tell me their names and what they're the God/Goddess of.

Obviously if wewe know TONS, then don't give me all of them, just some of the major ones, please.

There are twelve main ones, called Olympians.

Zeus - king of the gods
Hera - Zeus's wife and the goddess of marriage
Aphrodite - goddess of love
Apollo - god of the sun
Ares - god of war
Artemis - goddess of nature
Athena - goddess of wisdom and war
Demeter - goddess of grain and the harvest
Dionysus - god of wine and pleasure
Hephaestus - god of moto
Hermes - messenger of the gods
Poseidon - god of the sea

The 13th and my inayopendelewa is Hestia the Greek Goddess of Hearth and Home.

There are an infinite amount of minor gods and goddesses. many families had their own personal household gods.

Wow. Thank you. Sorry to be such a bother, though. It was a kind of special project and every information I researched wasn't very reliable au as well informed.

wewe have the right to believe your own truth. But polytheism is a very real part of many cultures, wewe can't just dismiss that fact. If wewe do wewe fall pry to ignorance.

Does anyone actually believe in the ancient Greek Gods anymore? I'm 100% atheist, so I'm sadly misinformed as to the religious beliefs of others nowadays.

I just upendo Greek Mythology!
Oh and one more....

Dionysus is not on the orodha because he's a new comer..
But the truth is Hestia sacrificed her position for him but Greek mythology considers that Hestia is one of the 12 Olympian gods not Dionysus.... :)

Actually, Hades is not included into the 12 major gods. Hermes should've be in his place.

The gods and godesses of the Ancient Greek Mythology are zaidi than 10000, for sure. I can't write all of them here. I had found a book about AGM which had a ''family tree''', including most of the dudes that ruled the world that time. But it was in Greek. Do wewe know/are wewe Greek? If it's really important for you, I can find the title.
