Ladice (Cyrenaean Princess) - Prayer To Aphrodite

Prayer To Aphrodite

Ladice made a silent prayer to the Greek Goddess of love Aphrodite. If Aphrodite could save her life and her marriage, she would dedicate a statue to her in Cyrene. The Goddess answered her prayer and her marriage was consummated and the Pharaoh fell deeply in love with her. Amasis withdrew the charge from Ladice.

Ladice ordered a statue to be made in the image of Aphrodite and she sent the statue to Cyrene, where it was placed looking outward from the city. The statue was still there in the time of Herodotus.

    To give thanks in solitude is enough. Thanksgiving has wings and goes where it must go. Your prayer knows much more about it than you do.
