Ares, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Dionysus, Hebe, Hermes, Heracles, Helen of Troy, Hephaestus, Perseus, Minos, and the Muses are Aphrodite’s biological and stepsiblings. These characters are the offspring of Zeus, the result of his numerous amorous adventures. Dione is Aphrodite’s mother, according to Homer’s “Iliad.”
The Greek goddess of love, beauty, reproduction, and pleasure is Aphrodite. The Roman equivalent is the goddess Venus.
Hesiod’s “Theogony” contains an alternative account of Aphrodite’s birth. In this piece, Aphrodite rode on the sea foam when Cronus severed and flung into the ocean Uranus’ genitalia. Therefore, Aphrodite’s father is sometimes referred to be Uranus. Aphrodite Pandemos and Aphrodite Ourania, according to Plato, were two distinct goddesses.
