In addition to explaining how creation itself began, myths in many cultures have the function of “just-so” stories, explaining various other important things - the invention of fire, why we have weather, and the names of plants and birds, for example. Greek and Roman mythology is no different: enfolded in grand stories of gods and heroes are some of the ways the ancient Greeks and Romans understood many of the more common aspects of their world.
Although the gods and goddesses were powerful, immortal beings, they were in many ways still very like the humans who worshiped them and created these tales. The gods and goddesses are stricken with jealousy; they fall in love; and they get angry when they feel slighted and bestow gifts when they are honored. Likewise, the heroes are larger than life: They’re stronger, faster, and more skilled than ordinary mortals, but they are still subject to pain, illness, and death.
