Eros was the Greek god of love, desire, and passion. He is usually represented as a winged youth or infant, often with a bow, and sometimes blindfolded. The myths vary on his parentage, naming him the offspring of either Aphrodite, Chaos, or Nyx. He is more commonly known today under his Roman name Cupid.
