    Titans and Olympians: Green and Roman Myths in the Myth and Mankind series by Time-Life books (1997) is a competent introduction to many of the major Greek and Roman myths with stunning photos of art works to support the verbal narrative from that time period. It is not startling; there are no new interpretations or discoveries; but it provides an accessible narrative of the stories from the period. There is even a brief "how it influences us, still, today" legacy section. It provides an adequate review or introduction to the religion of the period. The gorgeous photos make it more attractive to read.
