In Greek mythology, Hebe was the goddess of eternal youth who
served the Olympian gods the Ambrosia that kept them forever young.
She was the daughter of Zeus and Hera and the wife of Heracles after he attained immortality.
Her cult was popular because it was believed that she could restore
youthful beauty to the aged. In Rome, where she was identified as
Juventos, she was the patron of young manhood.
