Himeros (“uncontrollable desire”) was another son of Aphrodite and Ares. Like his brothers Eros & Anteros, he is depicted with a bow and arrows, to create desire and lust in people. Himeros represented sexual desire or unrequited love. Himeros was identified by his carrying a taenia, a colourful headband worn by athletes.
The erotes are a group of winged gods and demi-gods from Classical mythology, associated with love and sex, and part of Aphrodite’s retinue. The collective term ἔρωτες – erotes is simply the plural of ἔρως – eros, or “desire”.
Stories of the erotes’ mischief or pranks were popular in Hellenistic culture. The figures were common motifs in classical art, often symbolizing various aspects of love. Other depictions include individual erotes as characters, particularly the offspring of Ares and Aphrodite: Eros, Anteros, Himeros and Pothos. The individual erotes are sometimes linked to particular aspects of love, such as unrequited love. In some traditions, erotes have an especial influence over homoerotic love.
General role and attributes
The erotes are a group of winged gods in Classical mythology. They are associated with love and sexual desire, and form part of Aphrodite’s retinue. The individual erotes are sometimes linked to particular aspects of love, and are often associated with same-sex desire. Sometimes the erotes are regarded as manifestations of a singular god, Eros.
Stories of the erotes’ mischief or pranks were a popular theme in Hellenistic culture, particularly in the 2nd century BCE. Spells to attract or repel erotes were used, in order to induce love or the opposite. Different erotes represented various facets of love or desire, such as unrequited love (Himeros), mutual love (Anteros) or longing (Pothos).
The erotes were usually portrayed as nude, handsome, winged youths. The earliest known sculptured friezes depicting a group of erotes and winged maidens driving chariots pulled by goats, were created to decorate theatres in ancient Greece in the 2nd century BCE. The representation of erotes in such friezes became common, including erotes in hunting scenes. Due to their role in the classical mythological pantheon, the erotes’ representation is sometimes purely symbolic (indicating some form of love) or they may be portrayed as individual characters. The presence of erotes in otherwise non-sexual images, such as of two women, has been interpreted to indicate a homoerotic subtext. In the cult of Aphrodite in Anatolia, iconographic images of the goddess with three erotes symbolized the three realms over which she had dominion: the Earth, sky, and water.
