Vestal virgins

Statues of the Vestal Virgins in the Roman Forum - Rome, Italy. The Vestal Virgins were priestesses of the Roman Goddess Vesta and were responsible for ensuring the sacred fire never went out. Most of these statues no longer have heads due to likely marauders who ransacked the temple and decapitated the statues.
