Aphrodite and Atalanta
Hello I'm the goddess of beauty, fertility and love Aphrodite. I am the daughter of Uranus. My name actually comes from the greek word Aphros which means foam because I was found on the sea shore
Hello, I'm Atalanta I was put into the wilderness when I was born by my own dad. I grew up raised by hunters.
I decided to go on the voyage of the Argonauts I was the first to draw blood so i got the skin as prize. But my uncles tryed to take it with force.
After the voyage I was reunited with my father and he wanted me to get married but I had one condition. The suitor had to beat me in a race.
I was brought to help by Hippomenes and Melanion. To give them 3 golden apples to put before Atalanta to get her distracted when she went to retrieve them she was skowed down enough for one to get past and beat her.
We had a very short marriage because Hippomenes didn't pay Aphrodite so she put a curse on him.
