Hermaphroditus was the son of Aphrodite and Hermes, and was transformed into an androgynous being by union with the water nymph Salmacis. He was a companion of Hymenaeus.
Hermaphroditus was a patron of the union between men and women; by embodying both masculine and feminine qualities, he symbolized the coming together of men and women in sacred union (Aphrodite and Hermes also had the role of protecting and blessing brides).
