From the Paper:

"As it pertains to the impact of Greek influence on Roman Religion , there were many changes that occurred after 200 B.C. According to a book entitled A History of Rome, Greek influence on Roman religion was most noticeable as it pertained to the introduction of New Gods and temples. The book explains that "under Graeso-Etruscan influence, old Italic deities were transformed. For example, ,Liber Pater, god of fruitfulness, who, assimilated to the Etruscan Fufluns and Thracian Dionysus, became Bacchus, god of wine and resurrection." In addition, other gods were assimilated in much the same way. The author explains that many temples were built and a national religious developed throughout the Roman Empire. Greek philosophy also became quite pervasive following 200 B.C."
