HECATE GODDESS OF THE NIGHT
Hekate was a torch-bearing goddess of the night. She was accompanied by a train of ghosts and her passing was marked by the baying of hounds. She was perhaps also a goddess of the moon or else of moonless, starlit nights.

Hesiod, Theogony 404 ff (trans. Evelyn-White) (Greek epic C8th or 7th B.C.) :
"Asteria (Starry One) . . . conceived and bare Hekate (Hecate)."

Homeric Hymn 2 to Demeter 19 ff (trans. Evelyn-White) (Greek epic C7th or 6th B.C.) :
"Queenly Deo [Demeter] wandered over the earth with flaming torches in her hands [after the abduction of Persephone] . . . But when the tenth enlightening dawn had come, Hekate, with a torch in her hands, met her . . . [and] sped swiftly with her, holding flaming torches in her hands. So they came to Helios (the Sun), . . . and stood in front of his horses"

Sappho or Alcaeus, Fragment 23 (trans. Campbell, Vol. Greek Lyric I) (Greek lyric C6th B.C.) :
"[Hekate] the golden-shining attendant of Aphrodite." [N.B. As a goddess of the night Hekate is here associated with Aphrodite, for intercourse is more often than not a nighttime activity.]

Bacchylides, Fragment 1B (trans. Campbell, Vol. Greek Lyric IV) (Greek lyric C5th B.C.) :
"Torch-bearing Hekate holy daughter of great-bosomed Nyx (Night)."

Orphic Hymn 1 to Hecate (trans. Taylor) (Greek hymns C3rd B.C. to 2nd A.D.) :
"Hekate . . . pleased with dark ghosts that wander through the shade . . . nightly seen."

Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 3. 840 ff (trans. Rieu) (Greek epic C3rd B.C.) :
"Propitiating the only-begotten Maiden (Koure mounogeneia) [Hekate] with a midnight offering . . . Brimo [Hekate], nurse of youth (kourotrophos), Brimo, night-wanderer of the underworld (nyktipolis khthonie), Queen of the dead (anassa eneroi)."

Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 3. 1194 ff :
"Hekate Brimo . . . hearing his words from the abyss, came up . . . She was garlanded by fearsome snakes that coiled themselves round twigs of oak; the twinkle of a thousand torches lit the scene; and hounds of the underworld barked shrilly all around her."

Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 4. 55 ff :
"[Selene the Moon laments :] ‘How many times . . . have you [the witch Medea ] disorbed me with your incantations, making the night moonless so that you might practise your beloved witchcraft undisturbed.’" [N.B. Hekate gave witches with the power to draw the moon down from the sky.]

Ovid, Metamorphoses 7. 162 ff (trans. Melville) (Roman epic C1st B.C. to C1st A.D.) :
"In the deep stillness of the midnight hour . . . she [Medea] stretched her arms to the stars . . . ‘O Nox (Night) [Nyx], Mother of Mysteries, and all ye golden Astra (Stars) who with Luna (the Moon) [Selene] succeed the fires of day, and thou, divine three-formed (triceps) Hecate, who knowest all my enterprises and dost fortify the arts of magic.’"

Ovid, Metamorphoses 10. 403 ff :
"Out of Erebos and Chaos she [the witch] called Nox (Night) [Nyx] and the Gods of Night (Di Nocti) and poured a prayer with long-drawn wailing cries to Hecate."

Valerius Flaccus, Argonautica 7. 515 ff (trans. Mozley) (Roman epic C1st A.D.) :
"Hecate, queen of the night."

Nonnus, Dionysiaca 44. 198 ff (trans. Rouse) (Greek epic C5th A.D.) :
"Dionysos waited for darksome night, and appealed in these words to circle Mene (Moon) in heaven : ‘O daughter of Helios (the Sun), Mene (Moon) of many turnings, nurse of all! O Selene (Moon), driver of the silver car! If thou art Hekate of many names, if in the night thou doest shake thy mystic torch in brandcarrying hand, come nightwanderer, nurse of puppies because the nightly sound of the hurrying dogs is thy delight with their mournful whimpering.’"

Hekate led the ghosts of the dead across the world at night. Her passage was heralded by the baying of dogs.

Homeric Hymn 2 to Demeter 436 ff (trans. Evelyn-White) (Greek epic C7th or 6th B.C.) :
"The lady Hekate was minister and companion to Persephone [goddess of the underworld]."

Aeschylus, Doubtul Fragment 249 (from Plutarch, On Superstition 3. 166A) (trans. Weir Smyth) (Greek tragedy C5th B.C.) :
"But either thou art frightened of a spectre (phantasma) beheld in sleep and hast joined the revel-rout of nether (khthonia) Hekate."

Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 3. 840 ff (trans. Rieu) (Greek epic C3rd B.C.) :
"Brimo [Hekate], night-wanderer of the underworld (nyktipolis khthonie), Queen of the dead (anassa eneroi)."
