Bryant, Megan E. Mythlopedia She's All That! New York City: Scholastic, 2010. Print. ... “Aphrodite Family Tree." 107voices.ning.com. Ning, 2013. ‘APHRODITE was the great Olympian goddess of beauty, love, pleasure’. She was depicted as a beautiful woman usually accompanied by the winged godling Eros. Her attributes included a dove, apple, scallop shell and mirror. In classical sculpture and fresco she was often depicted nude. Aphrodite Pandemos is perhaps best described as a goddess of life, for she presides over so many aspects of it. She is not just love, or beauty, or sex, or women: she is all of those things and many more besides. She is at once removed from humanity ‘heavenly,’ the goddess who mixes the golden smile and utterly tied together with beauty.
