This list is intended for minor deities and demigods. Divinities are arranged by cultural groupings. It does not necessarily include divinities included in other articles. These are principally minor divinities whose worship extends into modern times. It also includes unmade divinity pages.

It's important to remember that devout Arathracians are much more likely to utter a prayer to one of the many Arathracian Saints. Arathracians of all levels of devotion are especially common in Erechóreb, Nymentho except Xsys, Asbardy, New Erechóreb, and Aracusia. There is a very large minority of Arathracians elsewhere in southern Pytharnia, with some communities having a clear majority.
