A divine hero, Homer describes him as the most beautiful of mortals, in the best-known myth, he is abducted by Zeus, in the form of an eagle, to serve as cupbearer in Olympus. In the original paint we see him rolling a hoop and carrying a cock, a usual gift that lovers were offering to young boys to show their affection.
