THE UNKNOWN GOD

The devotion of the Unknown God or Agnostos Theos is based on the theory that in addition to the twelve main Olympian Gods and the innumerable lesser deities, other, till then unknown Gods might exist, whose names and nature were not yet revealed to the ancient Greeks. So they worshiped a deity they called the Unknown God.

In Athens there was a temple specifically dedicated to the God. He was not so much a specific deity, but he represented any God or Gods whose actual existence might be revealed in the future.
