在希臘神話中,天后希拉之女,青春女神赫貝,本來職司眾神飲酒聚會時斟酒的工作

她後來奉命嫁給了大英雄海格利士而免除此差役。

One day,when another banquet was being held, Zeus (8)transformed himself into a (9)hawk and flew to Mount Ida, where he found a beautiful young Trojan (10)shepherd named Ganymede, and (11)abducted him to Olympus where he was made to serve as a (12)servant pouring wine for the gods.

有一次眾神聚會時,天神宙斯就化身為一隻大鷹,將正在艾達山牧羊的特洛伊俊美少年甘尼米德捉到奧林帕斯山上,命令他去擔任替眾神斟酒的僕役。

 

Ganymede was (13)assignedas a permanent(14)replacement for Hebe because he did such a great job.From then on, Ganymedestayed with the gods, becoming the (15)cup-bearer for them. He also became Aquarius in the sky.

由於他的工作表現非常稱職,天神就派他填補赫貝留下的職位空缺,後來甘尼米德就這樣永遠留在天上,提著酒壺為眾神酌酒,成為天上的水瓶星座。
