Transcript of Greek God: Hebe

Hebe A Greek Goddess project Modern Day References to Modern Day Society Sources (visual and sources) Contributions Characterization Symbol Hebe was married to Heracles after he was granted immortality by the gods. Despite this, she is still considered one of the maiden goddesses. Together they had two children, Alexiarias and Anicetus. . Hebe was often characterized as young and beautiful, but with less charisma than the other gods, relying purely on her gifts to gain attention. She is also said to have been clumsier than the other gods, and not possessing the same ethereal grace the others had. She is a goddess, though not a major goddess. Hebe is depicted in many ways but several aspects remain the same in all portrayals:

young girl, as she is a maiden goddess and the patron of the young bride
she is drawn normally carrying a pitcher of the ambrosia she serves the gods
normally wearing a sleeveless or strapless short dress Hebe is important because without her, the gods would not have immortality and be able to continue doing their work for the mortals and overseeing their domains. Hebe would be considered a good role model because:

She is immortal and forever young and this is what many people aspire to be.
She is sweet, and is often characterized as helpful and selfless, which are also characteristics many people strive for. Hebe is referenced in the Illiad, and in John Milton's
Her name is also in a mental disorder, called hebephilia. by Savannah Orth
