I represent love.
I'm the daughter of Heaven and Sea.
You may find me in the sky above,
And many envy my beauty.

My love belongs to fire,
But if I said I was true to him
I would be a liar,
But I have no shame for my whims.

My son taught many to love.
To me the only earthly items of worth
Are myrtle, sparrow, swan, and dove.
And no one remembers my birth.

brandon, Venus is Roman Mythology, Aphrodite is her Greek equivelent. that's what the hint meant. Aphrodite could also be a correct answer, along with Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli in Aztec, Kukulcan in Maya, Freyja in the Norse mythos, Ushas in Vedic religion, and many more.
