in Greek mythology, was the daughter of Jupiter and Juno, the goddess of youth and loveliness. She is often confounded with Hygea or the goddess of health, but the latter may be recognized by her long, modest dress; Hebe, on the contrary, appears with a light apron, and half naked. Not seldom the eagle of Jupiter is found at her side. She was married to Hercules, and bore him two sons, Alexiares and Anicetus. Although she was a daughter of the supreme deities, she appears in a subordinate relation, for she not only serves all gods at the table, but harnessed the horses of Juno, when the latter advanced with Minerva against the Trojans.
