Judgement of Paris (Greek Mythology)

The Judgement of Paris, Simonet (1904); At the marriage of Peleus & Thetis, an uninvited Eris (goddess of discord) arrived with a golden apple inscribed "for the fairest" which Aphrodite, Hera, & Athena all claimed to be. The goddesses let Paris decide. The naked goddesses appeared before Paris but he couldn't decide. Hera offered control of Asia & Europe. Athena offered wisdom, fame & glory. Aphrodite offered the most beautiful mortal woman (Helen) in the world as a wife, so he chose her.

The goddesses, Athene, Hera and Aphrodite, present themselves to Paris in the contest for the golden apple. The three stand together in a group, each bearing a sceptre or spear. Athene wears a helm, and Hera a crown. Aphrodite (centre) is accompanied by her winged son Eros, who stands on a plinth above her head.
