Eros in myth
The god whose name the asteroid Eros carries was the god of love and sexual pleasures in ancient Greece.
God Eros was the child of the love relationship between the god of war and passion, Ares, and the goddess of beauty and love, Aphrodite.
The name Eros means desire and sexual love.
This god was often portrayed carrying a lyre or bow and arrow.
The most famous mythical story related to this god was the one described by the Roman writer Apuleius, in his novel The Golden Ass. This was the story of this god and the Psyche who was a mortal princess.
Psyche’s beauty and the attention she attracted from men provoked Aphrodite’s jealousy, and she ordered her son, Eros (who was named Cupid in the Roman Pantheon of Gods), to make Psyche fall in love with an ugly man.
When Eros (Cupid) saw Psyche, he couldn’t resist her beauty and fell in love with her.
The story continues with a lot of drama and intrigue, betrayals, and supernatural powers, after which these two remain together.
