The Greco-Roman's view of the Universe is hierarchical.
They see it rise from Hades (bottom) up through the elements and planets to the twelve Olympians (top), who, as six males and six females, express the forces operating the Universe.
In this engraving of the Greco-Roman scheme the different planetary levels are shown, with Saturn's sphere contained by the zodiac.
