Hephaestus , Greek Hephaistos , in Greek mythology , the god of fire. Originally a deity of Asia Minor and the adjoining islands in particular Lemnos , Hephaestus had an important place of worship at the Lycian Olympus. His cult reached Athens not later than about bce although it scarcely touched Greece proper and arrived in Campania not long afterward. His Roman counterpart was Vulcan. According to myth , Hephaestus was born lame and was cast from heaven in disgust by his mother, Hera , and again by his father, Zeus , after a family quarrel. He was brought back to Olympus by Dionysus and was one of the only gods to have returned after exile. A blacksmith and craftsman, Hephaestus made weapons and military equipment for the gods and certain mortals, including a winged helmet and sandals for Hermes and armour for Achilles. As god of fire, Hephaestus became the divine smith and patron of craftsmen; the natural volcanic or gaseous fires already connected with him were often considered to be his workshops. In art Hephaestus was generally represented as a middle-aged bearded man, although occasionally a younger, beardless type is found. He usually wore a short sleeveless tunic and a round close-fitting cap on his unkempt hair.
Vulcan , in Roman religion , god of fire, particularly in its destructive aspects as volcanoes or conflagrations. Poetically, he is given all the attributes of the Greek Hephaestus. His worship was very ancient, and at Rome he had his own priest flamen. His chief festival, the Volcanalia, was held on August 23 and was marked by a rite of unknown significance: the heads of Roman families threw small fish into the fire. Vulcan was invoked to avert fires, as his epithets Quietus and Mulciber Fire Allayer suggest. Because he was a deity of destructive fire, his temples were properly located outside the city. His story is told by Servius , the 4th-century- ad commentator on Virgil. Article Media. Info Print Cite. Submit Feedback.
