"a Greek goddess, Hectate"

Hectate was a Greek Goddess, the equivalent to the Roman Goddess Trivia. A three-bodied Goddess who lived in the underworld, she was associated with the moon, childbirth, wilderness, crossroads and witchcraft, amongst others. Although early pictures of her showed only one woman, most images are of a triple Goddess with a virginal face, loose hair and a laurel crown. In modern history, probably due to her links to witchcraft, she was often depicted as a hag. She often holds a flaming torch, a serpent and a key, and is typically regarded as being a Goddess of ‘in between’ – borders, crossroads and the journey into the afterlife. The Ancient Greeks had two feast days a year dedicated to Hectate, whilst the Romans set aside the 29th day of every month in her honour.
