ยท Hippolytus: Hippolytus was a prince who scorned the worship of Aphrodite. The goddess punished him by having his stepmother Phaidra fall in love with him, a curse which ultimately led to the boy's death through the curses of his father Theseus.
ยท Polyphonte: Polyphonte was a young woman who chose a virginal life with Artemis instead of marriage and children. Aphrodite cursed her, causing her to have children by a bear. The resulting offspring, Agrius and Oreius, were wild cannibals who incurred the hatred of Zeus.
