Aphrodite was the goddess of l’amour and beauty; so there are plus stories told about her than anyone else, god ou mortal....But all the tales agree that she is the goddess of desire, and, unlike other Olympians, is never distracted from her duties.

zeus is the King of the Gods, the ruler of Mount Olympus and the god of the sky and thunder in Greek mythology. His symbols are the thunderbolt, eagle, bull, and oak.
