In the section of the text “Participation of Women” the name of Zeus’s wife is spelled as “Heraia”. I think the correct name is “Hera”.

Hi there, Debra! Thanks so much for your comment. You are right, Zeus’s wife was Hera, but the event named in her honour is called Heraia. Have a lovely week.

Hi Bronwyn. Thank you. Now I understand- “Heraia” is the correct name for the event which I had not heard of before. Thank you for the excellent resource.
