Adonis was the Greek god of beauty and desire. Nevertheless his origins are Semitic and is maybe based off the deity Tammuz.
His myth says that Aphrodite sheltered the baby Adonis and entrusted him to Persephone. Persephone fell in love with him and refused to give him back and the two goddesses started a dispute, only to be ceased by Zeus, who decided that the baby would be with each goddess one third of a year and the final third with the one he chose.
A boar would eventually kill him and Aphrodite would sprinkle his blood with nectar from which the anemone flower bloomed.
