IPTC INFO
CaptionCult images and altars of Hecate in her triplicate or trimorphic form were placed at three-way crossroads though they also appeared before private homes and in front of city gates.[9] In this form she came to be known as the goddess Trivia "the three ways" in Roman mythology. Hecate was closely associated with plant lore and the concoction of medicines and poisons. In particular she was thought to give instruction in these closely related arts. --- --- ---EARLY HISTORY --- --- ---The earliest known monument is a small terracotta found in Athens with a dedication to Hecate in writing of the style of the 6th century. The goddess is seated on a throne with a chaplet bound round her head; she is altogether without attributes and character and the main historical value of this work which is evidently of quite a general type and gets a special reference and name merely from the inscription is that it proves the single shape to be her earlier form and her recognition at Athens to be earlier than the Persian invasion. --- --- --- The 2nd-century travel writer Pausanias stated that Hecate was first depicted in triplicate by the sculptor Alkamenes in the Greek Classical period of the late 5th century BCE which was placed before the temple of the Wingless Nike in Athens. Greek anthropomorphic conventions of art resisted representing her with three faces: a votive sculpture from Attica of the 3rd century BCE --- --- --- In Egyptian-inspired Greek esoteric writings connected with Hermes Trismegistus and in magical papyri of Late Antiquity she is described as having three heads: one dog one serpent and one horse. In other representations her animal heads include those of a cow and a boar. --- --- --- Hecate has been characterized as a pre-Olympian chthonic goddess. She appears in the Homeric Hymn to Demeter and in Hesiod's Theogony where she is promoted strongly as a great goddess.
HeadlineHecate was called Triformis and shown with three faces each a lunar phase.As the "goddess of three forms" she was Luna [the moon] in heaven Diana [Artemis] on earth and Hecate of the underworld.
