In ancient Rome, a new Roman myth was born through the integration of many other Greek and foreign gods. This happened because the Romans had little of their own myths and the inheritance of Greek mythological traditions made Roman gods absorb the characteristics of the equivalent Greek gods. Once Upon A Time There Was A Girl Who Really Loved Sunflowers and Coffee shirt. Zeus and Jupiter are an example of this myth of overlap. In addition to the combination of two different myths, the Roman connection with Eastern religions led to further fusions . For example, the worship of the Sun only appeared in Rome after the successful Aurelianus campaign in Syria. Asian gods Mithras (meaning Sun) and Ba'al combine with Apollo and Helios into a Sol Invictus, with rituals and attributes merging together.  Apollo seems to be increasingly homogeneous in religion with Helios or even Dionysus, however the texts recounting legends about this god rarely reflect such a development. Myths in traditional literature are further away from religious practices in practice.
