Aphrodite and Eros : the development of erotic mythology in early Greek poetry and cult

Barbara Breitenberger

An interdisciplinary analysis of the Archaic period--using literary, iconographical, and cultic evidence--shows the distinct concept behind the two deities of love. Aphrodite's character, sphere of influence, and function feature in her traditional myths and are well reflected in cult.
