Hellenic

Having spread from the Greek heartland, the Olympian pantheon is venerated by many. The names, aspects and hierarchy of many of the gods can vary widely from region to region, however, Zeus, or Jupiter as he is known to the Romans, is regarded as the figurehead of the Olympian pantheon.
— In-game description

The Hellenic religion is a polytheistic faith spread throughout Italia, Illyria, Greece, and the Anatolian coast, with pockets in the wider Hellenistic world. This article documents the deities associated with the religion. All values are for Omen.png+100% Omen Power.

Many Hellenic deities can be accessed by any polytheistic nation that controls their holy site or has a specific percentage of Hellenic pops: 5% for Very Common deities, 10% for Common deities, 20% for Rare deities, and 40% for Very Rare deities.

Every Hellenic nation benefits from Pop happy.png+10% National Citizen Happiness.
