Ancient Greek doesn't use "C." That is why you often see things like Herakles, Kronus, Psyke, Kaos,

Kronus makes sense as the Greek alphabet doesn't have an equivalent letter for "c" but uses kappa (k) for all hard c sounds.

Titans are also gods. When people say "Greek Gods", they're usually referring to the Olympians, but the titans are just earlier generations of gods.

Saturn also possessed some of the aspects of Chronos - perhaps in error due to the similarity in names, however he did represent the passing of time in roman myth and so Chronos should also be accepted as a type in.

Chronos should be accepted as well I believe.

Isn't 'Apollo' the god of the sun and 'Helios' the Greek word for sun? Either way, I think 'Apollo' should still work for 'Sol'...unless I totally have Apollo mixed up with someone else. Any help?

As with most things mythological, it's complicated. They were originally two separate and distinct gods (though technically, Helios was a Titan), but they got conflated sometime around 300 BCE-ish. Similarly, Apollo's sister Artemis was not originally a goddess of the moon, but she got conflated with Helios' sister Selene (Luna, to the Romans.)

Apollo is god of the sun, but Sol isn't Apollo's Roman name, seeing as it stays the same. Sol belongs to Helios, Titan (generation before the gods) of the Sun

Pretty sure Gaia was a Titan... if not, she definitely was not a goddess, as she had relations with Ouranos to create the Titans.

"Titans" is just a word to refer to the Gods that ruled the world before the Olympians. So Titans are Gods, just not Olympians. Moreover, Gaia is not a Titan but a Primordial Goddess (before the Titans!)

ItsDaBunnyYT I believe there is a reason for restricting the addition of Apollo, because in Greek it is "Apollo" and in Roman it is still "Apollo." Like Nemesis and Janus (the goddess of Revenge and the God of doorways), Apollo's name does NOT change from the translation from Greek to Roman.

Demeter is a greek goddess and one of the Olympians, Roman name being Ceres, maybe add her to the list as she is sort of a female counterpart to Dionysus/Bacchus
