Ancient Mythology

Eros | Greek Mythology

Some greek myths say that Eros was the son Erebos and Nyx (the Night), others that he was born of Ares and Aphrodite.

Eros was the god of love and sexual desire, who fired arrows of passion at both gods and humans. Sometimes he toyed with peoples hearts, wounding them.

The Roman god Cupid was derived from Eros.
