My definition – a Greek god know for his beauty

Real definition – According to Greek Gods and Goddesses, “Adonis was the god of beauty and desire in Greek mythology.”  He was the son of Myrrha, who tricked her father Theias, king of Syria, into having sex.  He was loved by Aphrodite and Persephone.
