DEFINITION - Apotheosis (a·poth·e·o·sis): “(deification); a solemnity among the ancients, by which a roan was raised to the rank of the gods. The custom of placing mortals, who had rendered their countrymen important services, among the gods, was very ancient among the Greeks, who generally followed, in so doing, the advice of an oracle.”
