God of War - represented the unpleasant aspects of battle. Child of Zeus and Hera, in Hellenic Pantheon often represents the physical or violent and untamed aspect of war. Although he embodied the physical valor necessary for success in war, he was a dangerous force, "overwhelming, uncontrollable, insatiable in battle, destructive, and man-slaughtering." His divine sons are Phobos (Fear) and Deimos (Terror) and his lover Enyo (Discord} accompanied him on his war chariot. In the illian, his father Zeus tells him that he is the god most hateful to him. When Ares does appear in myths, he typically faces humiliation. He is well known as the lover of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, who was married to Hephaestus, god of craftsmanship. The most famous story related to Ares and Aphrodite shows them exposed to ridicule through the wronged husband's clever device. One of the roles of Ares was expressed in mainland Greece as the founding myth of Thebes: Ares was the progenitor of the water-dragon slain by Cadmus, for the dragon's teeth were sown into the ground as if a crop and sprang up as the fully armored autochthonic Spartoi. To propitiate Ares, Cadmus took as a bride Harmonia, a daughter of Ares' union with Aphrodite. In this way, Cadmus harmonized all strife and founded the city of Thebes. Upon one occasion, Ares incurred the anger of Poseidon by slaying his son Halirrhothius, who had raped Alcippe, a daughter of the war-god. For this deed, Poseidon summoned Ares to appear before the tribunal of the Olympic gods, which was held upon a hill in Athens. Ares was acquitted. This event is supposed to have given rise to the name Areopagus (or Hill of Ares), which afterward became famous as the site of a court of justice in antiquity and at in modern times.
