Roman mythology includes stories about the gods, the founding of Rome, its history, and more. Major sources of Roman myths include Virgil, Ovid and Livy. The myths of cultures that the Romans had contact with (and later conquered) such as the Sabines, Etruscans and Greeks
had a deep influence on Roman mythology. Many deities from these traditions were absorbed or identified with existing Roman deities. For example, Juno
was identified with Greek Hera
was identified with Greek Ares
, though they were in origin separate figures.
