Zeus & Ganymede

In Greek mythology, Ganymede, or Ganymedes (Greek: Γανυμήδης, Ganumēdēs) was a divine hero whose homeland was the Troad. He was a Trojan prince, son of eponymous king Tros of Dardania himself, and of Callirrhoe. Ganymede was the most beautiful of mortals, and was carried off by the gods (in the later story by Zeus himself, or by Zeus in the form of an eagle) to Olympus as Zeus' beloved and to serve as cupbearer to the gods.
