Aphrodite


Basic InfoEdit

Aphrodite ([1]i/æfrəˈdti/ af-rə-dy-teeGreek: Ἀφροδίτη) is the Greek goddess of lovebeauty, pleasure, and procreation. HerRoman equivalent is the goddess Venus.

According to Hesiod's Theogony, she was born when Cronus cut off Uranus's genitals and threw them into the sea, and she arose from the sea foam (aphros). According to Homer's Iliad, she is the daughter of Zeus and Dione.

Because of her beauty, other gods feared that their rivalry over her would interrupt the peace among them and lead to war, so Zeusmarried her to Hephaestus, who, because of his ugliness and deformity, was not seen as a threat. Aphrodite had many lovers—both gods, such as Ares, and men, such as Anchises. She played a role in the Eros and Psyche legend, and later was both Adonis's lover and his surrogate mother. Many lesser beings were said to be children of Aphrodite.
