Aphrodite, OTOH, sprang from the foam on the ocean that billowed up after Ouranos' genitalia were lopped off by Kronos and thrown in. I never did understand Botticelli putting her on the halfshell. Something to do with Santiago as a slogan and les coquilles Saint Jacques no doubt.

Athene's mother was Mnemosyne, the goddess of memory. Zeus was told that if Mnemosyne had a son, he would dethrone Zeus as Zeus had his father, the aforesaid Chronos. So when Mnemosyne became pregnant, Zeus turned her into a fly and swallowed her.

I don't know why he swallowed that fly.
Perhaps he'll die.

I would use glossalgia for pain in the tongue without stimulus, and glossodynia for pain caused by some form of stimulation which would not usually cause pain. But that's just me.
