==Cupid's lineage==
There are differing stories about his parentage. [[Cicero]] provides three different lineages: son of [[Mercury (mythology)|Mercury]] ([[Hermes]]) and [[Diana (goddess)|Diana]] ([[Artemis]]), son of Mercury and [[Venus (mythology)|Venus]] ([[Aphrodite]]), and son of [[Mars (mythology)|Mars]] ([[Ares]] in Greek mythology) and Venus. Plato mentions two of these, and [[Hesiod]]'s [[Theogony]], the most ancient Greek theoography, says that Cupid was created coevally with [[Chaos (mythology)|Chaos]] and the earth.
Throughout ancient mythological writing, there appear to be either two Cupids or two sides to the figure of Cupid. One is the son of [[Jupiter (mythology)|Jupiter]] ([[Zeus]]) and Venus. He is a lively youth who delights in pranks and spreading love. The other is a son of [[Nyx]] and [[Erebus]], and he is known for riotous debauchery.
Cupid's cult was closely associated with Venus', and he was worshipped as seriously as she. Additionally, his power was supposed even greater than his mother's, since he had dominion over the dead in [[Hades]], the creatures of the sea, and the gods in [[Mount Olympus|Olympus]]. Some of the cults of Cupid suggested that Cupid (as son of Night and Hell, perhaps) mated with Chaos to produce men and gods alike, so the gods were the offspring of love.
==Portrayal in art and literature==

In [[painting]] and [[sculpture]], Cupid is portrayed as a winged infant armed with a bow and a quiver of arrows. He is often mistaken for the [[Christianity|Christian]] depiction of a [[cherub]]. On gems and other surviving pieces, he is usually shown amusing himself with childhood play, sometimes driving a hoop, throwing darts, catching a butterfly, or flirting with a [[nymph]]. He is often depicted with his mother (in graphic arts, this is nearly always Venus), playing a horn. He is also shown wearing a helmet and carrying a buckler (perhaps in reference to [[Ovid]]'s "amor vinces omnia" or as political satire on wars for love or love as war).
Cupid figures prominently in ariel poetry, lyrics, and, of course, Ovid's love and metamorphic poetry. In epic poetry, he is less often invoked, but he does appear in [[Virgil]]'s [[Aeneid]] changed into the shape of [[Ascanius]] inspiring [[Dido]]'s love. In later literature, Cupid is frequently invoked as fickle, playful, and perverse. He is often depicted as carrying two sets of arrows: one set gold-headed, which inspire love, and the other lead-headed, which inspire hatred.
The best known story involving Cupid is the tale of [[Cupid and Psyche]], first attested in [[Apuleius]]' [[picaresque novel]], ''[[The Golden Ass]]'', written in the [[2nd century|second century CE]].
