Ares, Aphrodite Love Triangle- Aphrodite married to Hephaestus but sleeping with Ares Hephaestus pointing and laughing at them Not happy that Aph. Is cheating on him, but love and marriage very different Why Ares/Aphrodite? Uncontrollable emotions that are feared when get out of control Types of strong emotion Aphrodite’s eastern influence- Ishtar and Astarte- eastern female gods- mix of love and war Could be taken from that Picture of old Hephaestus Pictures of Aphrodite mostly with Ares, not Hephaestus Athena/Minerva Child of Zeus and Metis- Zeus swallowed her, seems to escape on technicality By swallowing her, she’s not technically born Prepared for battle right away, springs out Goddess of Wisdom: War/strategy Invention/technical intelligence Patron of heroes- helps heroes in the stories (Odyssey, Iliad) Iconography: Don’t mix up with Ares- longer tunic Helmet (not always on), shield, spear or other weapon, not bow (Artemis) Breastplate (aegis)- sometimes w/Gorgon Owl Nike in hand-small female figure- representing victory
