On Rhodes, the main god to the Dorians was Herakles, god of the transvestites with a cult following.
Meanwhile, the Dorian tribe of Hylleis claimed descent from Hyllos the son of Herakles in special rites.
The Greeks labelled all mother-earth figure goddess worship as "Demeter worship." However, some of the
characteristics and reigns of these mother-earth figure goddesses may have been very different from
Demeter. Both Kalymos and Thera had Demeter-type mother earth goddesses as the main deity and men were
excluded from these cults. In Lindos and Rhodes they worshipped a Dionysos type of deity who took on
alternate names such as Propoleos or Kathegemon. In Greek mythology, Dionysos was more of a theatre
god, but to these peoples, he was more of a god of vegetation.

On Rhodes, Athena type cults had male priests instead of female priestesses. Artemis was depicted as
a virgin goddess concerned with childbirth. On Kos, Athena was called Alseia and women gave sacrifices
of pregnant ewes to her.

Basileia was the name given to a deity that was a cross between Hera and Aphrodite. In Pandemos, this
same goddess was mainly a goddess to prostitutes or courtesans, sexual, but lacking the intellectual
element. Other names for her were Hypakoos and Paphia.
