Hecate by mari-na Hecate by mari-na
Hecate or Hekate is a chthonic Greco-Roman goddess associated with magic and crossroads.
She is attested in poetry as early as Hesiod's Theogony. An inscription from late archaic Miletus naming her as a protector of entrances is also testimony to her presence in archaic Greek religion. wikipedia [link]

cool Hekate painting, that shows her as young woman, true to mythology. She is NO crone goddess, but a deity of the starry night sky and also the moon.
Her twin Hekatos, was later to become  Apollon, sun god and ruler of the day. Hekate#s moon aspect changed into Artemis.
She is an old pre-hellenistic Goddess, part of dualistic twin deities, representing night and day.
