Dione is Aphrodite's mother, according to Homer
You are DIONE, beautiful mother of golden Aphrodite. When your daughter comes crying to you, you explain that many other gods have been hurt by men, and not to get upset. Diomedes will soon pay for his crime (he doesn't, though). You wipe away the nasty ichor, and the wound heals at once. (Such is the difference between gods and men.) But Aphrodite's enemies, Hera and Athena have been watching all this.
