One of my favorite movies ever!!!
My great-great-grandmother’s portrait hung in the university up until the Revolution. By then, the truth of their romance had been reduced to a simple fairy tale. And, while Cinderella and her prince did live happily ever after, the point, gentlemen, is that they lived.

Detail of Hylas and the Nymphs, 1896, oil on canvas, Manchester Art Gallery, Manchester.
The myth behind this painting has an unhappy ending. When the ship of the Argonauts reached the island of Cios, Hylas, the young and handsome companion of Hercules, was sent ashore in search of water. He discovered a fountain, but the nymphs of the place were so enchanted by his beauty that they pulled him to the depths of their watery abode, and in spite of the cries of Hercules which made the shores reverberate with the name Hylas, the young man was never seen again.
Back to the Greek Mythology…
a little bit of Athena
In The Greek Myths, Robert Graves narrates early myths about the birth of Athena, “coming to Greece by way of Crete”. Hesiod (c. 700 BC) relates that Athena was a parthenogenous daughter of Metis, wisdom or knowledge, a Titan. Other variants relate that, although Metis was of an earlier generation of the Titans, Zeus became her consort when his cult gained dominance. In order to avoid a prophecy made when that change occurred, that any offspring of his union with Metis would be greater than he, Zeus swallowed Metis to prevent her from having offspring, but she already was pregnant with Athena. Metis gave birth to Athena and nurtured her inside Zeus until Zeus complained of headaches and called for Hephaestus to split open his head with his smithing tools. Athena burst forth from his forehead fully armed with weapons given by her mother. She famously wields the thunderbolt and the Aegis, which she and Zeus share exclusively.
Plato, in Cratylus gave the etymology of her name as signifying “the mind of god”, theou noesis. The Christian apologist of the 2nd century Justin Martyr takes issue with those pagans who erect at springs images of Kore, whom he interprets as Athena:
“They said that Athena was the daughter of Zeus not from intercourse, but when the god had in mind the making of a world through a word (logos) his first thought was Athena”
John Milton’s Paradise Lost interprets this myth as a model for the birth of Sin from the head of Satan.
In the Olympian version
Although at Mycenaean Knossos Athena appears before Zeus does—in Linear B, as a-ta-na po-ti-ni-ja, “Mistress Athena”— in the Classical Olympian pantheon, Athena was remade as the favorite daughter of Zeus, born fully armed from his forehead. The story of her birth comes in several versions. In the one most commonly cited, Zeus lay with Metis, the goddess of crafty thought and wisdom, but he immediately feared the consequences. It had been prophesied that Metis would bear children more powerful than the sire, even Zeus himself. In order to forestall these dire consequences, after lying with Metis, Zeus “put her away inside his own belly;” he “swallowed her down all of a sudden.” He was too late: Metis had already conceived.

The Birth of Venus, by Botticelli
I love this painting!
I’m a huge fan of renaissance art, and Boticelli and DaVinci are my favorite artists from this period!
So I made a fun pupe fanart from the Birth of Venus, my Aphrodite Cytherea!
Aphrodite is also known as Cytherea (Lady of Cythera) and Cypris (Lady of Cyprus) after the two cult-sites claimed her birth.
Her name means “risen from the foam”, because she was born when Cronus cut off Uranus’ genitals and threw them into the sea, and from the sea foam (aphros) arose Aphrodite.
The Myth of Birth:
“Foam-arisen” Aphrodite was born of the sea foam near Paphos, Cyprus after Cronus severed Uranus’ genitals and threw them behind him into the sea, while the Erinyes emerged from the drops of blood. Hesiod’s Theogony described that the genitals “were carried over the sea a long time, and white foam arose from the immortal flesh; with it a girl grew” to become Aphrodite. Aphrodite floated in on a scallop shell. When she arose, she was hailed as “Cyprian,” and is referred to as such often, especially in the poetic works of Sappho. This myth of a fully mature Venus (the Roman name for Aphrodite), Venus Anadyomene (“Venus Rising From the Sea”) was one of the iconic representations of Aphrodite, made famous in a much-admired painting by Apelles, now lost, but described in the Natural History of Pliny the Elder.
