SUMMARY

Detail of Aphrodite and her attendant in a painting depicting the story of the love of Endymion and Selene (see other image for these). The figure of Aphrodite, holding a myrtle wreath in her hand, is labelled on the vase. Her companion is probably Peitho (Persuasion), who usually appears beside the goddess in these scenes.
