Heʹbe (2 syl.)

.

Goddess of youth, and cup-bearer to the celestial gods. She had the power of restoring the aged to youth and beauty. (Greek mythology.)

“Wreathëd smiles


Such as hang on Hebe’s cheek,

And love to live in dimple sleek.”


Milton: LʹAllegro.

Hebe vases. Small vases like a cotyliscos. So termed because Hebē is represented as bearing one containing nectar for the gods.
