Key Episode(s) to Decoding the Character
In Greek mythology, Hēbē is the goddess of youth (Roman equivalent: Juventas). She is the daughter of Zeus and Hera. Hebe was the cupbearer for the gods and goddesses of Mount Olympus, serving their nectar and ambrosia, until she was married to Heracles, (Roman equivalent: Hercules); her successor was the young Trojan prince Ganymede. Another title of hers, for this reason, is “Ganymeda.” She also drew baths for Ares and helped Hera enter her chariot.
In Euripides’ play Heracleidae, Hebe granted Iolaus’ wish to become young again in order to fight Eurystheus. Hebe had two children with her husband Heracles: Alexiares and Anicetus. In Roman mythology, Juventas received a coin offering from boys when they put on the adult men’s toga for the first time.
The name Hebe comes from Greek word meaning “youth” or “prime of life”. Juventas likewise means “youth”, as can be seen in such derivatives as juvenile. In art, Hebe is usually depicted wearing a sleeveless dress.
HEBE was the goddess of youth and the cupbearer of the gods who served ambrosia at the heavenly feast. She was also the patron goddess of the young bride and an attendant of the goddess Aphrodite. Herakles received Hebe in marriage upon his ascension to Olympos, a wedding which reconciled the hero with Hebe’s mother Hera.
In Greek vase painting Hebe was depicted either as the bride of Herakles, or the cupbearer of the gods, pouring ambrosia from a pitcher. Sometimes she was represented with wings like the goddesses Iris and Nike.
