Name:   Argive Heraion
Description:   The Heraion of Argos is an ancient sanctuary in Argos, Greece. It was part of the greatest sanctuary in the Argolid, dedicated to Hera, whose epithet "Argive Hera" appears in Homer's works. The memory was preserved at Argos of an archaic, aniconic pillar representation of the Great Goddess. The site, which might mark the introduction of the cult of Hera in mainland Greece, lies northeast of Argos between the archaeological sites of Mycenae and Midea. The traveller Pausanias, visiting the site in the 2nd century CE, referred to the area as Prosymna.
