We now leave the mild climate of the ancient Aegean, and the cold, forbidding regions of the North. Here, we enter the lush, green land, shrouded in mists of magic and wonders.

Aphrodite's This girdle was popular for its ability to arouse desire and create a great hunger for love. This girdle was so "potent" that whomever she desired would fall in love with her. It is even sometimes said that Hera once wore the girdle to win back Zeus's affection. Apollo was often depicted carrying a lyre, the Greek musical instrument with seven strings.
