Cyprus, Island of Aphrodite

Cyprus is known as the birthplace of Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty.  Accounts concerning her origins vary.  According to Hesiod, she was born when Cronus, the son of Uranus (sky) and Gaea (earth), castrated his father with a sickle and tossed the severed genitals into the sea which began to foam. From the aphros (foam) emerged the goddess on the south west coast of the island near the town of Pafos at a place called Petra tou Romiou.
