Description

“Europe, 3rd Century B.C.E.

Venus embodies sex, love, beauty, enticement, seduction, and persuasive female charm among the community of immortal gods; in Latin orthography, her name is indistinguishable from the Latin noun venus (“sexual love” and “sexual desire”), from which it derives. Venus has been described as perhaps ‘the most original creation of the Roman pantheon’, and ‘an ill-defined and assimilative’ native goddess, combined ‘with a strange and exotic Aphrodite.’” – Muriel
