I dunno 'bout this. In every mythology book I know of, from Edith Hamilton
on, Vulcan is the Roman cognate for Hephastos, explicitly, as Minerva was
for Athena, and Jupiter was Zeus Pater.
You also completely miss the Anglo-Saxon Wayland Smith, who I, personally,
sorta like, and could cheerfully put him together with Bridget.
