Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and fertility. Her Roman equivalent is the goddess Venus. Many believe that her worship came to Greece from the Middle East, whose own versions of the goddesses of love were known as Ishtar and Astarte.
According to Greek mythology, Aphrodite was born in Cyprus and was the daughter of Zeus and Dione. She rose from the sea on the shore of Paphos, a location of unique beauty, known today as Petra tou Romiou (Rock of the Greek).
There are many interpretations of Aphrodite including The Celestial Aphrodite, the goddess of ideal and pure love, Aphrodite Genetrix or Nymphia, who favoured and protected marriage, Aphrodite pandemus/porne, goddess of lust, patroness of prostitutes and Aphrodite Pelagia, a marine deity. She is also often depicted as a warrior.
