Also known as Ganymeda, or Dia, Hebe was the goddess of youth, herself remaining eternally young and beautiful. She was a daughter of Zeus and Hera, and like they and the other gods and goddesses, she staved off age by the use of nectar and ambrosia. On Olympus she was the cup-bearer of the gods;being the daughter of the two high deities it was her duty to wait on her father and mother, and their guests. She was also bound to yoke her mother's car, and when Apollo played with the Muses she danced with the other gods. Sometimes she accompanied Aphrodite.
