Hephaestus, the god of fire, especially the blacksmith's fire, was the patron of all craftsmen, principally those working with metals. He was worshiped predominantly in Athens, but also in other manufacturing centres. He was the god of volcanoes. Later, the fire within them represented the smith's furnace.
Hephaestus was lame, which gave him a grotesque appearance in Greek eyes.Hephaestus's symbols are a smith's hammer, an anvil and a pair of tongs.
