Servant of Vesta by Anell84

Servant of Vesta by Anell84  Rome, Forum Romanum, Temple of Vesta.

On this, the final day of Vestalia, the temple of Vesta was ritually cleaned and swept  by the servants of the goddess, the Vestal Virgins. The dust was collected, and carried by the Vestals to the shores of the River Tiber, where it was deposited, and borne away by the flowing water.
