List RulesVote up the greatest gods that resided on Mount Olympus.

From Aphrodite to Zeus, all the Greek gods and goddesses oversaw every aspect of the ancient world from marriages and love to wars and plagues. These Greek deities fill tomes with rich stories of their exploits and affairs. Many stories reveal insight into the human condition while others explain the Earth as it is, even to this day. You might recognize Greek god and goddess names in everyday items such as on a street sign or a character in a book series like Percy Jackson and the Olympians. You can find a connection to Greek mythology gods almost anywhere you look. While they no longer hold as much sway as they did in the days of Athens and Sparta these gods still occupy a significant role in society and pop culture.

The family tree of the gods is varied and extensive but this list covers all 14 gods that were said to occupy Mount Olympus depending on stories and translations. Vote up the Greek gods and goddesses you identify with the most or just happen to like more than the others.
