Ancient Roman Hekateion; a triple-bodied depiction of Hekate with the goddess's torch attribute. Each of the figures carries two torches, attributes of Hekate, the goddess who presided over pathways and crossroads, especially at night. Hekate was a goddess of the moon and of nocturnal sorcery, and, like Hermes, traveled to and from the underworld and earth. The three figures of the goddess also wear poloi, cylindrical headdresses often associated with female deities of rebirth.
