Greek mythology - Eros, the Greek god
of love and sexual desire (the word eros, which is found
in the Iliad by Homer, is a common noun meaning sexual
desire). He was also worshiped as a fertility god,
believed to be a contemporary of the primeval Chaos,
which makes Eros one of the oldest gods. In the
Dionysian Mysteries Eros is referred to as "protagonus",
the first born.
