Your Field Guide to Spotting Aeneas

Aeneas is bright, shiny, heroic perfection. No wonder all the ladies—including the beautiful queen Dido—went totally nuts for him. This guy has it all. Not only is he the son of the love goddess, Venus, making him extra dreamy, he was also a prince of Troy and the founder of a colony that would one day spawn the Roman Empire. Aeneas was actually so awesome that after he died, the gods made him one of them. These days he's the most eligible bachelor on Mt. Olympus (the Roman version, at least). So, if you know any eligible young nymphs or goddesses, please send them his way.
