Golden Apples... by TheLastHetaira Golden Apples... by TheLastHetaira
...and a pomegranate. Taken at a restaurant that served ancient Greek fare. Good stuff, it was. :D

Do I even need to mention that there are a million Greek myths with golden apples? There was the one with the tag of 'To the Fairest' that Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite had a holy bitchfight over, the ones dropped to keep Atalanta busy, and the golden apples of the Hesperides (which was apparently in Hera's private orchard). I was giddy to find these! :D

The pomegranate also has loads of symbolism, among them being the single seed that forced Persephone to return to Hades every winter. It was also associated with Hera and Demeter. Hooray for general fertility symbol? :lol:
