6 Hebe

This minor planet is named after Hebe, the cupbearer of the gods in Greek myth. She served them ambrosia and nectar, and had the power to grant eternal youth. Her job was later taken up by Ganymede, which is the namesake of both a moon of Jupiter, and a minor planet.

The classical symbol of this body is a cup. As Moskowitz does, this symbol is written with a Venusian cross.
