Round temple of Vesta in the Roman Forum and a picture of a Vestal Virgin. The temple held the hearth fire which the Vestal Virgins were responsible for tending. If it ever went out, it foretold the destruction of Rome. Vestal Virgins took an oath to remain a virgin for 30 years as they undertook their religious duties, and were buried alive if they went against their oath. They were housed in the House of the Vestals nearby to the temple in the Forum. There were 6 of these priestesses.
