was the Greek god of love. His Roman counterpart was ("desire"). According to Hesiod (c. 700 B.C.), one of the most ancient of all Greek sources, was the fourth god to come into existence, coming after Chaos, Gaia (the Earth), and Tartarus (the Abyss or the Underworld). Parmenides (c. 400 B.C.), one of the pre-Socratic philosophers, makes the first of all the gods to come into existence. In early Greek poetry and art, was depicted as an adult male who embodies sexual power. But in later sources, is represented as the son of Aphrodite, whose mischievous interventions in the affairs of gods and mortals cause bonds of love to form, often illicitly. Ultimately, by the later satirical poets, he is represented as a child, the precursor to the chubby Renaissance .
