Hippolytos, son of Theseus, spurns Aphrodite, goddess of love, and instead pledges his attention to Artemis, goddess of the chase and hunt. An enraged Aphrodite sets out to revenge her hurt pride. This lyrical re-creation of Euripides’ moving tale captures the eerie lament of a bloodstained Greek sea, with illustrations inspired by the classic pottery of ancient Athens.
