These Greek gods could be on the cover of any men’s magazine

The Hellenistic deity system consisted of twelve Olympian gods headed by Zeus.  Each of these deities had their own temples and sanctuaries.  In time, the Greeks started worshipping heroes or those they thought were semi-divine like Hercules.  The remains of this religion is now found in the form of sculptures and marble statues, created to represent the best of man and god.  Much needs to be said of the craftsmen of that time whose works of art are considered marvels, even in these modern times.  Here is a curated collection of Greek gods that is definitely going to elicit a positive response from our female readers!
