Piper: "You're talking about the Greek gods? Zeus? Athena? Aphrodite? They were mortals?"
Chris: "Mythology left that part out. Not the only inaccuracy, by the way."
— Piper and Chris discussing the Greek gods[src]

Aphrodite, also known as Venus and the Goddess of Love, was once a mortal woman, but was transformed by the Elders into a goddess. She was made the Goddess of Love. With the other mortals-made gods, Aphrodite helped entrap the Titans, but her own power went to her head and she, with the other gods, forced the world to worship them.
