Marble statue base with inscription appraising the health of the Roman Emperor, or "Salus Augusti." Many deities embodied the dedication, but there was a snake-wrapped goddess of prosperity named Salus. This was installed next to a main gate in the city walls of Ostia, 1st century CE. Lazio, Italy.

Why did the romans change the greek Deities' names if they're clearly based on them?

If they quite literally took the deities and made them their own, with barely any distinction or differences, why did they change most names?

 

IIRC some names are the same between Greek Deities/Roman Deities, such as Apollo, Gaia/Gaea (minor change), Persephone/Propserpine (minor change)

 

  • Why the changes?
  • Any meaning behind the change?

Was Jesus ever incorporated into the pantheon of Greek and Roman gods and worshipped as a minor deity by pagans?

Ancient Mediterranean peoples were known to worship gods from other cultures and societies. Is it possible Jesus was incorporated into the pantheon and worshipped alongside Dionysus by at least some Greek and Roman pagans? What ancient cults would have done this?
