Venus (or Aphrodite) was considered the Goddess of love and beauty. There are several myths about her birth, such as that of Homer according to which she was the daughter of Zeus and the nymph Dione, or the legend that saw her emerge from the sea in spring. Wife of Hephaestus (or Vulcan) was considered the accidental cause of the Trojan War.
