So, I've been researching deities a lot lately because who doesn't, right? Anyways, as I was looking into the more Celtic based ones I saw that a lot of them were drawn into the Roman pantheon via epithets in one form another and despite how obvious it is, I realized that the Greek deities were likely drawn in the same way. I mean it makes sense, the Romans conquered a lot so they had to find a way to pull in everything to support their religion and mythology.

And that got me to thinking, how do people feel that worship either Roman or Greek deities towards the others? They clearly aren't the same, and have differences, but let's say as an example, someone worships Poseidon; how do they feel about Neptune and the rest of the Roman pantheon and vice versa?

Looking forward to people's thoughts and opinons on this matter!
