Hestia the goddess of fire and the hearth, was responsible for domestic life. She was the daughter of Rhea and Cronos. She was the first of the great divinities swallowed by Cronos. The Romans knew her as Vesta.

This image of Hestia is based on one published in Alexander S. Murray's The Manual of Mythology..
