About This Quiz

Was mythology your favorite subject to study in school? Did you even read up on the gods and goddesses on your own time? Have you been first in line to see the many movies based on the stories of gods and goddesses? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then this is the quiz for you. Let's get started to find out how many of these 35 Roman gods and goddesses you can name.

Are you the person who can name each of the Roman gods and goddesses at trivia night, or are you one of those people who is completely confused by which of them is Greek and which is Roman? We sympathize with the fact that keeping them all straight is a challenge, but we like challenges... don't you? Although there are twelve major gods and goddesses, most of which you should know there was literally a deity for just about everything in the ancient world. Let's just say that the Romans had as many gods as the Catholics have saints. That's a lot!

If you think you're up to the task, let's get started. But, we'll still be here for you if you think you need to take a minute to study up a bit.
