Since you all know what Botticelli's "Birth of Venus" looks like, here is a Roman fresco of Aphrodite, Ares and little Eros. Known to the Romans as Venus, Mars and Cupid, respectively.
Moment of insight while looking at the trio: Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus; it is a little Love which unites us and maintains a balance of peace. Posted by Hello

I didn't know Eros was the son of Ares and Aphrodite..In Socrates dialogues he is the son of wealth and poverty and the messenger of the gods...this gives me an idea for a post..thank you Olivia

I need to reread some things. I had forgotten about eros in socrates' dialogue.

Did you read that in Dr Thiessen's philosophy class? You know, if you think about it, St Thomas gave us a really rich education!
