Yes, I understand this.

While I was writing these two sentences it seemed strange to me too writing
""In ancient Greece people always honored the gods of Olympus", and
applying to it the meaning of "specific instances of honoring the gods
which were always happening. (perfective)", thus translating it as {reH
'elaDya' tIQDaq olympus Qunpu' quvmoHpu' nuvpu'}. But I was more focused on
trying to find an example to demonstrate how I understand this matter, so I
didn't try to find another example.

Anyway, I'm glad you and ghunchu'wI' took the time to correct me, because
obviously I seriously misunderstood things. Thanks.
