Greek God of War – Greek Mythology

Ares, as previously noted – the Greek god of war in Greek Mythology – is the son of Zeus (the sky and thunder god) and Hera (the goddess of women and marriage).

He is normally depicted as a god of great physical valor and brute strength – both qualities needed to be extremely destructive and successful in battle, especially during ancient times. The Greeks had at best mixed feelings about him. Firstly, Zeus referred to him as the most hateful god, secondly, he was on the losing side during the Trojan War – a highly important war in Greek mythology that took place against the city of Troy.

Being on the losing side of the Trojan War, might have contributed to his limited role in Greek mythology and humiliation in myths. However, reference is frequently made of his multiple love affairs and fruitful offspring – something most men will not frown upon. Interestingly, one of his lovers was the goddess of love, Aphrodite – spouse of the god of craftsmanship, Hephaestus.

Whether you love him or hate him, you’ve got to appreciate how he is depicted on the reverse of the Ares God of War Gods 2 Oz. Silver Coin 2$ Niue 2017 – one of the most impressive low mintage coins and legal tender silver coins seen in a long time.
