"Perhaps the most striking aspect of Greek mythology is the sheer size of the pantheon. Unlike the relatively simple ones of Sumer and Egypt, in Greece there are hundreds of deities. Many of these are clearly cognate to others in the simpler cultures, where there is only one. For example, the Sumerian Inanna is cognate to a bevy of Greek goddesses including Hera, Aphrodite, Cytherea and many others." ~ from Why Men Made God, page 151.

Heinrich Schliemann Heinrich Schliemann, 6 January 1822 – 26 December 1890) was a German businessman and a pioneer in the field of archaeology. He was an advocate of the historicity of places mentioned in the works of Homer. Schliemann was an archaeological excavator of Hissarlik, now presumed to be the site of Troy, along with the Mycenaean sites Mycenae and Tiryns. His work lent weight to the idea that Homer's Iliad and Virgil's Aeneid reflect historical events. ~ Read the rest of the Wikipedia article.
