G A N Y M E D E Picture

Homer describes Ganymede as the most beautiful of mortals, which led Zeus, in the form of an eagle; to abduct him for service as cup-bearer in Olympus and as Zeus's eromenos.

I've been in love with that story. It's the ultimate Greek Love story besides the AchillesxPatroclus tale . LOL. In old Greece, eromenos means "the beloved". In this case, Ganymede is a beloved and Zeus "the erastes", the lover.

Simply "uke" and "seme" for shounen-ai / yaoi fans (like me lol)
