VESTA

Roman Hearth Goddess

The Hearth Goddess with the Vestal Virgins

She had a festival called Vestalia on 7th June. Ceremonies were conducted by extra-special Vestal Virgins who had taken vows of chastity lasting thirty-nine years. (And after thirty-nine years we suspect they were not inclined to bother.)

Greek equiv: HESTIA.
