About the Book

An interdisciplinary analysis of the Archaic period--using literary, iconographical, and cultic evidence--shows the distinct concept behind the two deities of love. Aphrodite's character, sphere of influence, and function feature in her traditional myths and are well reflected in cult.
About the Author: Barbara Breitenberger is Assistant Professor in the Department of Classics, University of Cincinnati. Her main interests focus on Greek literature (archaic period), mythology, and religion. She has also written a translation and commentary on fragments of Aristotle's poetic writings.
