Zeus & Ganymede at the British Museum

"The king of the Trojans had three noble sons, Ilus, Assaracus, and Ganymede who was the comeliest of mortal men; wherefore the gods carried him off to be Zeus' cupbearer, for his beauty's sake, that he might dwell among the immortals." - Homer, The Iliad Source: Lawrence OP on Flickr
