Hebe, the goddess of youth, or in Latin mythology, Juventas, was the daughter of Zeus and Hera. In Homer and Hesiod she is a virgin, until the deification of Heracles (Hercules), but in later writers, such as Apollodorus, she is the mother of his two sons, Alexiarus and Anticetus. In the Iliad she is represented as cupbearer to the gods, and she was worshipped as such at Sicyon and Phlius. At Athens she had an altar near that of Heracles; while at Rome there were two temples to Juventas. She was supposed to have the power of restoring youth.
