What did the Greeks believe about Aphrodite?
if they prayed to her, she would grant them love or beauty.
In the ancient past the Greeks believe in what we today call "classic mythology", the Olympians: Hera, Zeus, Poseidon, Demeter, Apollo, Artemis, Dionysus, Aphrodite, Athena, Ares, Hermes, and Hephaestus. As well as others: today, many Greeks believe in God. There is, however, the revival of New Age "pagan" believes.
Hera is just as beautiful as Aphrodite. Athena wasn't as beautiful as them. Yeah, so what if Aphrodite is what the Greeks believe to be the goddess of love and beauty? Are people forgetting that Hera is the goddess of marriage and childbirth? Yeah, MARRIAGE! And Paris never judged Aphrodite to be lovlier or more beautiful then Hera or Athena. He simply gave Aphrodite the apple because Aphrodite offered him the best gift: the love…
Apollo sent a plague on the Greeks. But he stopped Laokoon from warning the Trojans about the wooden horse. Athena is on the side of the Greeks; Aphrodite and Ares support the Trojans. The gods took great interest in the war. Poseidon, Hera, and Athena aided the Greeks, while Aphrodite and Ares favored the Trojans. Apollo was also involed in the war.
