OT: The original 'Hot Lips'?

Post by keilg1 » Fri Sep 09, 2022 8:03 am

Prompted by the wonderful post and pictures by @vampicker viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6831, I thought I'd add a bit of my own fun.

Here's a lovely lady, Hera, who, according to Wikipedia "is the goddess of marriage, women and family, and the protector of women during childbirth. In Greek mythology, she is queen of the twelve Olympians and Mount Olympus, sister and wife of Zeus, and daughter of the Titans Cronus and Rhea. One of her defining characteristics in myth is her jealous and vengeful nature in dealing with any who offend her, especially Zeus' numerous adulterous lovers and illegitimate offspring."

She was also known as an Ἀλέξανδρος (Alexandros) or 'Protector of Men', an Αἰγοφάγος (Aigophágos) or 'Goat-Eater'... and Βοῶπις (Boṓpis) or being 'Cow-Eyed' -- or 'Cow-Faced'.

One complicated lady... and one that had many facets to her, faces if you will, and not all of them complimentary (nor complementary for that matter).

Never heard of her being called 'two faced' like Janus (he was a Roman deity after all...), but she certainly appears that way on this coin. Hot lips, hot eyes and more...

Hope you see her as attractive as I did when I purchased her.

That would have been Κοπρο φάγος, easily identified by a vacant grin and bad breath.
