Hecate as crone...thoughts?

Hecate is often seen today as a crone even though in early Greece she was seen as a young maiden.

I think that the crone thing comes from her wisdom, her underworld aspects, and her relation to the practice of magick and I definitely understand it in its *symbolic* sense.

How do people here see Hecate? Crone? Maiden? Or something else?

I think quite a few people have a hard time with the idea that someone that is young can be wise. I personally tend to picture her as a very spry crone. Wise, witty, full of vigor and knowledge.
