Aphrodite grows from the foam that appears when Cronos casts Heaven's members into the sea. Eros and Desire follow her from her birth. She forces love upon gods and men, such as when she wills Circe to have Telegonus. She also aids in the conception of Typhoeus, the son of Earth and Tartarus. Aphrodite seizes Phaeton and makes him the keeper of her shrine.
