Declining the Gods
by: L. Tyrrhenus Garrulus
In many formulae you'll find the names of deities, semi-deities or festivals declined. In some cases, it is not always clear to see to what class they belong or how to decline them. However, as soon as you know what their genitive case ending is, declining the rest is easy. To take a look at the different declination schemes, please go here. In some cases, you'll find that words have a Greek declension. They have been grouped seperately. Many latinised Greek names fall into the category of the third declension, however.
