"According to the Ancient History Encyclopedia, the ancient Greek god of war Ares (Roman name: Mars) was perhaps the most unpopular of all the Olympian gods because of his quick temper, aggressiveness, and unquenchable thirst for conflict. Described by Hesiod as ‘shield-piercing Ares’ and ‘city-sacking Ares’, the god represented the more brutal and bloody side of battle - in contrast to Athena, who represented the more strategic elements of warfare. In mythology, Ares was usually to be found in the company of his children with Aphrodite, Phobos (Fear) and Deimos (Terror), with his sister Eris (Strife), and with his charioteer Ennyo. Son of Zeus and Hera, Ares’ sisters were Hebe and Eileithyia. "
