With the start of February comes flowers, chocolates, and candlelight dinners. But, nobody will be working harder this month to make these acts of love happen than a certain mythological character – Cupid.
Starting with his ancient Greek roots as the mischievous god of desire, Eros, he was known as the son of Aphrodite until he was given his Roman name, Cupid, and has since became a cultural icon in modern times as a winged child whose arrows can make two people fall head over heels in love with each other.
Cupid is often featured playing games, pranks, and politics among the Pantheon and lesser mortals. But in modern times, Cupid is just a symbol of Valentines Day.
