Liv reads Book III of the Odyssey, translated into prose by Samuel Butler. This is not a standard episode, it's simply a reading of the Odyssey. For regular episodes look for any that don't have "Liv Reads the..." in the title!
This translation uses the Roman names for gods and heroes. Here's a list Greek to Roman names to help you out:
Zeus = Jove/Jupiter
Hera = Juno
Athena = Minerva/Pallas Minerva
Ares = Mars
Aphrodite = Venus (Cyprian goddess); also sometimes her mother is Dione
Poseidon = Neptune
Hades = Pluto
Hermes = Mercury
Kronos = Saturn
Artemis = Diana
Leto = Latona
Hephaestus = Vulcan
Odysseus = Ulysses (I think he's the only mortal with a name change, the Romans were weird)
Heracles = Hercules
(Not Latin, but Achaeans/Danaans = Greeks, Argives = from Argos, Ilius = Troy, Dardanian = ally of Troy, Alexandrus = Paris)
