Venus is a Roman goddess, a symbol of love, beauty, desire, sex, fertility, prosperity and victory. In Roman mythology, he was the ancestor of the Roman people through his son Aeneas, who survived the fall of Troy and fled to Italy. Julius Caesar claimed it as his ancestor. Venus was at the center of many religious holidays and was revered in Roman religion with numerous cult titles. The Romans adapted the myths and iconography of its Greek counterpart Aphrodite to Roman art and Latin literature. In the subsequent classical western tradition, Venus became one of the most widely cited deities of Greco-Roman mythology as the embodiment of love and sexuality.
