Some did, certainly; but it's difficult to pin down who really believed in the greek gods as they appeared in mythology, and who believed in gods more as spiritual forces (not busy sleeping with all the human girls in sight).  Socrates, in his trial, seems to imply the latter. Aristotle's De Anima surveys much of greek thought on this topic, if you're interested.
