A Hekateion is a monument, dedicated to Hekate, a goddess in ancient Greek religion and mythology associated with magic, witchcraft, the moon, She had knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, and sorcery. She was regarded with (some) rulership over earth, sea and sky. A triple Hecate was the goddess of the moon in three forms: Selene the Moon in heaven, Artemis the Huntress on earth, and Persephone the Destroyer in the underworld. She ruled over three kingdoms: the earth, the sea, and the sky and had the power to create or hold back storms, which influenced her patronage of shepherds and sailors. These goddesses are depicted with symmetrical pleasing idealized features and a sense of beauty that was considered ideal in Roman art. They stand on a circular base with their backs to a taller column and each holds an attribute, and stands by torches.
