Asteroid Ceres in mythology

ceresCeres is  the protector of the Earth, and  the  benevolent goddess of all plants that are consumed for food, agriculture, type of diet, food, fertility, etc. However, a tragedy struck her. Her beautiful daughter, Persephone was kidnapped by Hades (Pluto in Roman), the god of the underworld, and taken to his dark caves.   As expected in Greek mythology which can be pretty twisted,  Hades happened to be the brother of  Ceres, and he fell in love with his own niece. He promised her all the gold and comfort, if only she will love him in return.  Ceres meanwhile grieved and raged at the loss of her daughter, and abandoned the care of her plants, resulting in worldwide starvation.  Zeus intervened and  a deal was made wherein Persephone could stay half time with her mother Ceres and half time with Hades, and this is how we got the seasons, spring and summer when Ceres is happy and winter when Ceres is grieving.
