Aphrodite

Wednesday, 20. June 2012 Website Admin

In Greek mythology, Aphrodite is the goddess of love, beauty and sexual rapture. According to Hesiod, she was born when Uranus (the father of the gods) was castrated by his son Cronus. Cronus threw the severed genitals into the ocean, which began to churn and foam about them. From the aphros ("sea foam") arose Aphrodite, and the sea carried her to Cyprus. In Roman mythology Venus is the goddess of love and beauty.
