I love Steal! <3
a swan ..? maybe...
in the same category : one time zeus turned into a magnificent white bull to seduce Europa, and as she mounted him he went to the shore and swam until he reached Crète (don't know the english name)....
then he took back his normal form and united with her under a plane-tree, offered some presents and left ; she later had 3 sons, among whom Minos.... the king of Crète later married her ; and designed minos as his successor
the story doesn't stop here though : minos, now the king, asked poseidon to push out a white bull (they loved bulls at the time ) and in return promised to sacrifice him to the glory of the sea god.
He kept the magnificent bull for the breeding of his herd, and that of course unnerved Poseidon who quickly found a great vengeance : he made minos' wife, Pasiphae, fall in love with the white bull ^^"
She asked Athenian architect Dedale to construct a wooden cow coated with leather, and waited in it until the bull came and.. well... came
This union gave birth to the Minotaure

It's both of them since they're the same god.

"According to myth, Leda was approached by the god Zeus while he was masquerading as a swan. Indeed, Zeus made love to Leda in this form."
was somewhat in the right direction. Yeah...beastility is good, no?
As you can probably imagine, being a deity who can fuck anyone you want can make you kinda jaded. Zeus had to spice things up a bit...and few things are more exotic than basically raping a girl in the form of a swan. He also had sex as a bull, and he impregnated a woman as-wait for it-a golden rain shower.

Egyptian is good....
Greek is okay....
Norse is fine....
Roman.... well.... Romans basically rip off conquered cultures' myths and take them as their own, adding and throwing out some details here and there....
