Dione in Wikipedia
Dione, (Greek: Διώνη) pronounced /daɪˈoʊni/, in Greek
mythology is a vague goddess presence who has her most
concrete form in Book V of Homer's Iliad as the mother of
Aphrodite. Aphrodite journeys to Dione's side after she has
been wounded in battle while protecting her favorite son
Aeneas. In this episode, Dione seems to be the equivalent of
Gaia the Earth Mother, whom Homer also placed in Olympus, and
to that extent might be classed as a "mother goddess".
Dione's Indo-European name is really less a name than simply a
title: the "Goddess", etymologically a female form of Zeus.
After the Iliad, Aphrodite herself was sometimes referred to
as "Dionaea" and even "Dione", just "the goddess" (Peck 1898).
Roman "Diana" has a similar etymology but is not otherwise
connected with Dione...
