Different, yes, but that doesn't mean incompatible.

This may be the belief of some, but it is certainly not standard. There is evidence that several Olympian deities were originally foreign.

I can understand that trying to look at it from a multi-cultural polytheist perspective. I know of a former regular on another forum who was an Ásatrúar, Hellenic Polytheist, and a Buddhist, and it seemed everything worked for him...But like I mentioned, most of the Hellenic Reconstructionists I've communicated with happen to be followers of Hellenismos, that have said in some instances worshipping a foreign deity would have been illegal in Greece, and I'm sure would disagree on there being any outside influence on the Olympians(going from prior conversations Cheesy) But that is very interesting Juni, I didn't know that. Would you know of any online sources I can read up on regarding that? I do come across the Greeks a lot in Hermeticism, and it would really broaden my horizons.
Whether the national requirements were a part of the traditional religion, or not, (I'm not too sure, as I mentioned Gaelic Trads are my forte), but I do see now from threads here that there are various forms of Hellenic Polytheism. Those I've goten my impressions from are very intelligent and well versed in ancient texts, but they do seem to strongly disassociate with anything neo-pagan, and are probably rigid about eclecticism to make sure there is no grey area between "Neo-Paganism" and "Reconstructionism" within their path....or it least that's the impression I get. I can understand that as well, but Polytheism is just Polytheism to me  Smiley
