Dii Consentes

The Twelve Gods

The Twelve Gods was a collective term referring to the twelve major deities of the Greek pantheon. They were also referred to as the Dii Consentes within the Roman pantheon.[1]

During the Peloponnesian War Athens housed an open-air shrine dedicated to the group.[2]

Thousands of years later, Abstergo Industries included imagery of the Twelve Gods and their Roman equivalents as part of their research into the First Civilization, noting the influence of the precursor Isu species on ancient human pantheons.[1] Some, if not all, of the Twelve were deifications of Isu individuals, including Aphrodite and Hermes.[3]
