Hecate’s Supper..At the new moon at evening the rich sent a meal to Hecate as an offering to the goddess of the crossroads. The poor showed up ravenous, ate the things and claimed that Hecate had devoured them . There is a variant tradition that there was no theft involved, but instead deliberate charity. It was usual for wealthy persons to leave a loaf of wheat bread for Hecate and for the poor to take these, as beggars live on sacred offerings. 'Plutus', by Aristopahnes

Hekate Apotropaia - As it is told in one oracle of Apollo about placing the image of Artemis with the same purpose: "She will ward off your sufferings and dismiss the man-destroying spells/poisons [pharmaka] of the plague, melting the wax-molded dolls by night with the flames of her firebearing torches, the evil tokens of the mage’s craft."
