    Heya. Just a brief clarifying note: I’m not a Hellenic, by association, practice or identity. I am a Thracian Polytheist. (I’ve actually never even been to a traditional Hellenic ritual.) There are geographical relationships between ancient Thracians and ancient Hellenes, but as a Thracian Polytheist I am no more Hellenic than I am Celtic, Gaulish, Roman or Germanic, all of which are cultural traditions who the ancient Thracian traditions had regular geographical, cultural, economic, mythic and religious cross-influential exchange with.

      I’ll go change that. I realize that I mentally lump a lot of cultures into “Greece” in a way that isn’t really accurate.
