Aphrodite is the Greek Goddess of beauty, and one of the twelve Olympians.

Worship Edit

The myrtle tree and the dove are sacred to Aphrodite.[1] The swan and the sparrow are sacred to her as well.[2]

Aphrodite is worshipped with incense altars and dove sacrifices.[3] Another form of worship is intercourse with a priestess of Aphrodite, but wether or not her priestesses were prostitutes is disputed.[4]
