Although this might be considered a list based questions the full answer's validity will not change with time as there was a finite list of Greek and Roman deities and that will not change in the future. Which Greek deities do not have an "equivalent" in the Roman pantheon and vice versa?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it reads like a list question, which are typically off-topic on SE sites. – David Stratton Apr 30 '15 at 11:46

    Yes indeed. But as stated in the question itself the reason list questions are off topic in SE sites because they can easily change. Now questions like this one or questions of the likes of "How many and which human children did Zeus have?" are not the typical list question of SE sites. Thus this is different. It has a finite set of answers which will never change in time – John Demetriou Apr 30 '15 at 11:49

    Understood. :-) It'll be important for the community to determine what is and isn't acceptable for list questions, and this may well be a perfectly fine question. the other issue with list questions is that they tent to be too broad, which is what triggered me to vtc on this one. that may have been a close reason, if a close reason were needed. – David Stratton Apr 30 '15 at 12:11
  • I still do not believe that this should be closed though. I am only getting into conversation because this will help build the site onwards. In the list question meta link you provided James answer covers list questions how they should be treated and I believe this to fall under the not close section – John Demetriou Apr 30 '15 at 12:13

    I voted to leave this question open because I actually wanted to ask it myself. Anyway, I may agree that this topic may be too broad to receive a proper answer. – Lucia Bentivoglio Apr 30 '15 at 12:52

    Titans are gods. I quote the Oxford Classical Dictionary: "Titans, name inherited by Hesiod for gods of the generation preceding the Olympians." – C. M. Weimer Jan 26 '16 at 22:19

Orcus is a Roman-specific deity. He's the god of Demonic Torment of damned souls. If he was Greek, he'd have worked in the Fields of Punishment.

Thanatos is one I know of. The Romans felt that trying to rename death wouldn't be very wise.
