Interpretatio Graeca

Just stumbled across this wiki page that has some interesting gaming applications. It discusses Interpretatio Graeca and Interpretatio Romana, two specific examples of Syncretism.

Most directly applicable to gaming is this chart that shows the gods held in common by ancient Greeks, Romans, and Etruscans. It's useful for Scion, GURPS Imperial Rome, Fulminata, etc.
