Hebe, the cupbearer for the gods
Hebe was the daughter of Zeus and Hera; she is also considered the goddess of youth. She used to serve nectar and ambrosia to gods and goddesses during their feasts. Italian sculptor Antonio Canov depicted her in some of his most famous statues. The artist represented a bare-breasted Hebe coming down from a cloud, with flowing peplos around her legs. Her right arm lifted above her head held a small amphora called oinochoe, which were used to pour wine into calyxes. Her left hand gently holds a calyx, which looks like it was just taken off the table to be filled.
Nectar and ambrosia
In ancient Greek mythology, nectar and ambrosia were told to be the nourishment of gods; we don’t know exactly what kind of food it was and where it originated from. Humans were forbidden to eat the food of the gods. In mythology, Tantalus committed the crime of offering nectar and ambrosia to his guests and for this was condemned to be eternally hungry and thirsty. Gods, therefore, could only eat mythical substances which we have no modern description for.
