Mars, the Roman God of war, was also known as
Aries to the Greeks. Their names are perfectly
interchangeable. From the time of Homer, the god
Mars was one of the Olympian deities, the son
of Zeus and Hera, but disliked by the other Roman
god figures. Worship to the god Mars occurred
largely in north Greece. He was associated from
early times with Aphrodite, occasionally portrayed
as his legitimate wife and at other times his
lover. He would be accompanied in battle by his
sister Eris (strife) and by two of the children
that he had with Aphrodite, Phobos and Deimos
(Panic and Rout) during ancient Roman war fighting.
