Ambrosia and nectar were believed to be "the food of the gods" in ancient Greece, and ambrosia is often characterized as a fluid. This Roman relief depicts the story of Ganymede feeding Zeus, disguised as an eagle, ambrosia in a two-handled drinking vessel or kylix. Zeus came to Ganymede as an eagle to carry him away from earth and to live on Mount Olympus, where he made the young man an immortal servant to the gods.
