Frederic Leighton, Elijah in the Wilderness (detail)
Aphrodite, Pan, and Eros.
NAM, Athens, 3335: c.100 BC.
Found in the ‘House of the Poseidoniastai of Beryttos’, Delos.
Eros comes to Aphrodite’s aid as she tries to fend off Pan.
Made of Parian marble: the inscription on the base tells us that the statue group was dedicated by Dionysios of Beryttos to his ancestral gods.

”(…) Odô Iyá, yemanjá, Ataramagbá
Ajejê lodô! Ajejê nilê!”
"Mãe das águas, Iemanjá, que estendeu-se ao longe na amplidão.
Paz nas águas! Paz na casa!”
Libation to Deméter and Perséfone.
