Yes, and those interpretations are usually garbage, having polluted it with Abrahamic bullshit.
Additionally, considering the gods of Greece, it would be incomprehensible if not for that debasement you call "interpretation." It's stupid because it executes a concept poorly, ignores the source material beyond taking names, and I can't even conceive of why you're defending it, when even the lampshade they put over it for diversity's sake is unnecessary, considering how vital the Mediterranean and middle east is for the Silk Road.
You want a better idea? Those goddesses keep watch for worthy individuals, then bring them to the island with the offer of eternal life and youth in exchange for serving their causes, either as warriors, philosophers, or whatever else caught the attention of Hera, Athena, or Aphrodite.
