Did Euripides believe in the Greek gods?

It is difficult to say for sure whether Euripides believed in the Greek Gods or not. He lived in Athens through 406 b.c. and wrote many plays. His plays are about the affairs of the Gods, so Euripides most likely did believe in their existence. Alcestis features Apollo, Herakles, and Thanatos. In Trojan Women, Poseidon and Athene are main characters. And the Bacchae revolves around Dionysus' punishment of King Pentheus of Thebes and his mother for failing to worship him. With these examples, it's easy to assume that Euripides did, indeed, believe in the Greek Gods.
