Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, and sexualit. 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 Zeus married her to Hephaestus, who, because of his ugliness and deformity, was not seen as a threat.“Muse, tell me the things done by golden Aphrodite, the one from Cyprus, who arouses sweet desire for gods, and who subdues the races of mortal humans.”
