“Mercurius stirred by Venus’s beauty, fell in love with her, and when she permitted no favours, became greatly downcast, as if in disgrace. Jove pitied him, and when Venus was bathing in the river Achelous he sent an eagle to take her sandal to Amythaonia of the Egypitans and give it to Mercurius. Venus, in seeking for it, came to him who loved her, and so he, on attaining his desire, as a reward put the eagle in the sky.” – Hyginus,Astronomica 2.16
