Vesta is an asteroid discovered in 1807. This is the second heaviest discovered asteroid and the fourth discovered after the first one, Ceres was discovered in 1801.
Vesta has two giant-sized craters on its surface and it is believed that they are a result of mass collisions from billions of years ago.
The debris caused by these collisions fell on Earth in the form of meteorites.
Vesta the asteroid, got its name from the Roman goddess Vesta, the goddess of home, family, and fertility. She was also considered the protector of the Romans. Vesta was symbolized by the fire burning endlessly in her temple which was in the Roman forum.
She was considered a very important goddess and was even dedicated a holiday called Vestalia.
Her temple had women priestesses, the Vestal virgins, or Vestals. They were chosen as young girls from the age of six to ten to serve in the temple for a period of at least 30 years during which they’ve agreed not to lose their virginity.
The Vestals were at first chosen by the Pontifex Maximus, the chief priest of Rome, and later, from the time of the emperor Augustus, that role transferred to the emperors of Rome.
The Vestals’ main role was to take care of the sacred fire in the temple of Vesta because it was considered a protecting factor for the citizens of Rome. If the Vestals somehow failed their duties they were severely punished.
The goddess Vesta was a virgin, but also a deity of fertility. She was prayed to by women who couldn’t have children. The Vestals performed rituals for good agricultural harvest and fertility.
