|Categorising a story as a myth does not necessarily imply that it is untrue. Religion and mythology differ, but have overlapping aspects. Many English speakers understand the terms "myth" and "mythology" to mean fictitious or imaginary. However, according to many dictionary definitions, these terms can also mean a traditional story or narrative that embodies the belief or beliefs of a group of people, and this Wikipedia category should be understood in this sense only. The use of these terms in this category does not imply that any story so categorized is historically true or false or that any belief so embodied is itself either true or false.|

Roman mythology is a mixture of general Greek and local myths about Rome and Roman gods and other Italian gods which are independent of Greek beliefs and tales. Gods and some heroes in Roman mythology often appear in Greek mythology with different names, sometimes a name of a Roman/Italian deity that largely corresponded to a particular Greek deity, sometimes with a variation of the Greek name as adapted into Latin.
