Laodicea ad Lycus, Phrygia, 2nd Century B.C.
Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, and sexuality. In a contest to select the fairest goddess, Zeus made Paris the judge. Aphrodite presented herself naked and whispered that if he chose her, he would have the most beautiful mortal woman in the world as a wife. This was Helen, already married to King Menelaus of Sparta. The Trojan war was the revenge of the defeated Hera and Athena.
