Aphrodite in Mythology - Aphrodisias Turkey

 
In the beginning there was Chaos, a great hollow on Earth called Tartaros and a lighter part on the heaven with the moon, the sun and stars. From Chaos came forth many strange children; the first one was Eros, or Love and then Uranos, or Heaven; and Pontos, the Sea; and Mother Earth. The Heaven and the Earth had many children. But the Heaven, Uranos hated his children and feared them; and as each was born, he hid them in secret places and kept them in darkness. But Mother Earth helped them to rebel. So they cast down Uranos from the sky.

The youngest son, Cronos wounded his father and his blood fell on the sea. From these drops of the blood sprang up Aphrodite. She became the goddess of beauty and love.

Another story when Cronos cut off his fatherís genitals, he cast them into the sea. These, together with the sperm within them united with the sea water and foam, the goddess of beauty and love, exquisite Aphrodite was born. This happened close to the shores of Cyprus and a little later she went up to Olympus and claimed her rightful position amongst the other gods.
