Who Is Aphrodite?

Aphrodite is the Goddess of Love, Beauty, and Eternal Youth. Homer claims she was the daughter of Zeus and Dione, but others insist she was born from the sea foam and brought to Cyprus, where locals brought her to Mount Olympus. Then she was adopted by Zeus. She was born in Paphos, Cyprus and is an Olympian Goddess. The Roman name for Aphrodite is Venus, and is similar to the German Goddess Freya, a Phoenician goddess, and Venus of Rome. Aphrodite’s symbols are the dove, sparrow, swan, and myrtle. Aphrodite to me is one of the most unique goddesses of ancient Greek history.
