"I am the Soul of Shu the Self-Created God, I have come into being from the flesh of the Self-Created God (Ra-Atum). I am the Soul of Shu, the God invisible of shape, I have come into being from the flesh of the Self-Created God, I am merged in the God, I have become He. I am He Who calmed the sky for Himself, I am He Who reduced the Two Lands to order for Himself, I am stronger and more raging than all the Enneads of the Gods. I am He Who foretells Him (Ra) when He ascends from the Horizon, I am He Who puts the fear of Him into whoever would search out His name. I am He Who is among the Primeval Gods (the Ogdoad) and Who hears the words of the Primeval Gods, I am He Who despatches the word of the Self-Created (Ra-Atum) to the multitudes, I am He Who captains the Sacred Bark (of Ra) and its crew, I am stronger and more raging than all the Enneads of the Gods. I have repeated the words of the Ancestral Gods and Those Who came into being after me, They enquire about my creation from the Primaeval Ocean (Nun), They see me strong and raging in the Bark which the Self-Created God (Ra) navigates, and I have stood among Them, I display splendour in accordance with my nature.” (from the LXXV spell of the Coffin Texts)

The Argive Heraion or Heraion of Argos was part of the greatest sanctuary in the Argolid, dedicated to Hera, whose epithet “Argive Hera” appears in Homer’s works. Hera herself claims to be the protector of Argos in Iliad (IV, 50–52): “The three towns I love best are Argos, Sparta and Mycenae of the broad streets.” According to a legend recorded by Dictys of Crete, Agamemnon was chosen at the Heraion to lead the Argives against Troy. Earliest finds at the site date to the Geometric period (900-700 BC), during which the Iliad was composed.
The entire sanctuary occupies 3 artificial terraces below Mt. Euboea and has a commanding view of the Argive plain. The New Temple, on the middle terrace, was built by Eupolemos of Argos after the Old Temple was burned down in 423 BC.
The ruins of the Heraion lie northeast of Argos between the archaeological sites of Mycenae and Midea, two important Mycenaean cities.
