Gods of Olypus In ancient Greek religion and mythology, the twelve Olympians are the major deities of the Greek pantheon, commonly considered to be Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Ares, Aphrodite, Hephaestus, Hermes, and either Hestia or Dionysus. They were called 'Olympians' because they were considered to reside on Mount Olympus. Hades was sometimes included as part of the twelve Olympians, although in general Hades was excluded because his realm was far away from Olympus in the underworld.
