Talia i guess because most people know hercules by hercules, not heracles. if some people (uneducated in mythology) might have been confused if riordan put heracles
Christine The Heroes of Olympus series goes into all the Roman gods and what happens whenever the Greek and the Roman sides meet up. As for Hercules, when they meet him in the Mark Of Athena, he states that he prefers his Roman name since it has less to do with Hera/Juno so that's what everyone tends to think of him as, regardless of if it's Greek or Roman times, even though he was Greek.
