  “In the house of every Greek and Roman was an altar; on this altar
  there had always to be a small quantity of ashes, and a few lighted
  coals.  The fire ceased to glow upon the altar only when the entire
  family had perished; an extinguished hearth, an extinguished family,
  were synonymous expressions among the ancients.”
