Though the Trisdekatheon dominate the skyline with their temples, it is the Anthrotheon that hold primacy in the hearts and tales of Calopius. This entire caste of gods was once mortal, and through their majestic efforts of heroism, earned immortality and a taste of the sweetest ambrosia. Their bloodlines continue to flow through mortals, and those marked by this heritage have within them the potential for great deeds above and beyond most other mortals. These listed heroes are merely the greatest of their kind, and the most discussed. Lesser heroes populate the Anthrotheon, as well, their veneration localized or contained to the family that claims them.

Temples of the Anthrotheon do not have altars. Instead, their worship is centered on stories. As such, priests to their orders are not as necessary, and few divine casters claim to channel their power. It is not unheard of, but there is a fear that too many clerics of heroes will anger the jealous Trisdekatheon, perhaps triggering a new divine war. As such, it is story scrolls and the rare codex of legends that are central to the success of the Anthrotheon. Their tales circulate and find expression in plays, songs, paintings, sculptures, sarcophagi, and more.

If there is a figure from Greek or Roman myth you would like a heroic lineage from, please let me know and I can add an entry to this page. I am more than happy to accommodate more varied interests in these myths.
