Arthur Darby Nock (1902-1963), "Religious Attitudes of the Ancient Greeks," Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society 85.5 (September 30, 1942) 472-482 (at 482):
We must not look for consistency in men's religious actions, any more than in their secular conduct: norms of belief and facts of practice, words and deeds do not fit: nor do men mean all that they say, in reverence or irreverence, least of all men as nimble of wit and tongue as were many of the Greeks. Religion is not all or nothing, certainly not among them.
