Among the images that would appear when the goddess Hecate was conjured with theurgy were, as I have mentioned before, fire and light, but there also would be images of horses and boys.
The boys were supposedly the souls who had died in a nefarious manner and were forced to accompany Hecate.
But what of the horses?
Is there a connection with the story of Phaeton? With Eros? With the myth of the charioteer in the Phaedrus?
