Aphrodite (or Venus in roman mythology) was the greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, fertility, prosperity and victory.

EROS--the Greek god of love; son of Aphrodite. His Roman cognate is CUPID. APHRODITE--the Greek goddess of love. Her Roman cognate is VENUS. PSYCHE--a mortal princess whose beauty aroused the jealous wrath of Aphrodite, but who was chosen by Eros to be his bride. Despite evident differences in the two stories, the popular fairytale "Beauty and the Beast" is actually a late folk version of a Greek myth, the story of Eros and Psyche.
