    you mean the olympians? go here if you want ALL the greek gods. www.theoi.com I was a hellenic pagan for a bit in my teens this site is golden. as for the olympians...

    zeus

    hera

    hades

    hestia

    poseidon

    aphrodite

    apollo

    athena

    ares

    artemis

    hermes

    hephaestos

    I always like to include Demeter and Persephone into the mix and say there is 14 because well demeter is interchangable and persephone is married to hades and the daughter of demeter. Also depending on who you ask hestia can be traded out for Dionysos, some texts say that she gave up her seat on olympos to stop a squabble of hera's. I believe it was robert frost.

    hope this helped
