I knows it's no big deal but why some gods like Zeus & Hades are from Greek mythology while other gods like Neptune, Mars & Minerva are from Roman mythology? Yes I know Neptune & Poseidon are the same gods with different names but why using different set of names? Isn't the theme of this game is Greece vs Egypt?

The theme is gods in general. Each Mythology deck is actually themed for a different religion, as described in the rulebook:

The Pantheon extension is actually adding gods from 5 different mythologies: Greek, Phoenician, Mesopotamian, Egyptian & Roman. (Pantheon designates in ancient Greece a temple were all gods are worshiped)
Thus it is normal to have Greek gods with Greek names and Roman gods with Roman names.
