Visiting Aphrodite's Island in Cyprus

Goddess Aphrodite in Cyprus, Greece

The third-largest island in the mediterranean sea is the beautiful island of Cyprus. Cyprus is often referred to as the island of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty. However, according to the text from Hesiod’s Theogony, she approached Cythera first.

Hesiod's Theogony

Here is the exerpt...

 

About [the genitals] a white foam grew from the immortal flesh, and in it a girl formed. First she approached holy Kythera; then from there she came to sea-girt Cyprus. And out stepped a modest and beautiful goddess, and the grass began to grow all round beneath her slender feet. Gods and men call her Aphrodite, because she was formed in foam [aphros], and Kythereia, because she approached Kythera, and Cyprus-born, because she was born in wave-washed Cyprus, and laughter-loving [philommeides] because she appeared out of genitals [medea]. Eros and fair Desire attended her birth and accompanied her as she went to join the family of gods. And this has been her allotted province from the beginning among men and immortal gods: the whisperings of girls; smiles; deceptions; sweet pleasure, intimacy, and tenderness. [from Hesiod’s Theogony]

 

From this, we can gather that the Goddess Aphrodite has genuine links with Cyprus and Kythira. Therefore, this article will focus more on the island of Cyprus.
