Acraea (Greek: Template:Polytonic) was a name that had several uses in Greek and Roman mythology.[1]

  • Acraea was a daughter of the river-god Asterion near Mycenae, who together with her sisters Euboea and Prosymna (Πρόσυμνα) acted as nurses to Hera. A hill Acraea opposite the temple of Hera near Mycenae derived its name from her.[2]
