New Temple, Argive Heraion, Argos, Greece

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.

HELP YOUR MOTHER AND DIE.

CLEOBIS AND BITON’S MUM WAS A PRIESTESS OF HERA. IT WAS A SPECIAL FESTIVAL DAY OR SOME SHIT LIKE THAT SO THE PRIESTESS HAD TO GET TO THE TEMPLE.

UNFORTUNATELY NOBODY COULD FIND THE SPECIAL OXEN FOR PULLING HER PRIESTESS-MOBILE SO SHE WAS FREAKING THE FUCK OUT ABOUT BEING LATE. INSTEAD OF TAKING THE LOGICAL STEP OF FINDING A HORSE, CLEOBIS AND BITON OFFERED TO PULL THE CART THEMSELVES.

THEY GOT HER THERE JUST IN TIME FOR HER PRIESTLY SHENANIGANS SO SHE PRAYED FOR HERA TO GRANT HER SONS THE BEST GIFT THE GODS CAN GIVE. SHE CLEARLY DIDN’T GET THE MEMO ABOUT MAKING WISHES SPECIFIC OR BAD SHIT HAPPENS.

THE SONS GET UP AND GO INTO THE TEMPLE AND LIE DOWN AND SLEEP. BUT THEY DON’T WAKE UP. THEY’RE FUCKING DEAD. THAT WAS HERA’S GIFT. THIS IS WHY HERA SHOULDN’T DO SECRET-SANTA .

"You’ve absolutely ruined this for me, Anna. The mood is officially dead. You know that law prohibiting murder? You just broke it. You killed the mood.” “Aw, don’t be like that.” - ch3. The Steward

"We made it because Elsa refused to leave me behind, and she swore that she would always look after and protect me. And since that day, whenever I dreamt about my future prince, he always had blonde hair and pale skin, because I couldn’t imagine a hero looking like anyone except Elsa." - ch7. The Nursemaid – Part III

Athena helps build the Argo: Roman moulded terracotta plaque, 1st century AD

This plaque is said to have been found near the Porta Latina in Rome. The relief represents the fitting out of the Argo, the famous vessel in which the Greeks risked the first great national undertaking. Athena herself, as Ergane, the goddess of labor, presides; and whilst the mythic builder (Argos) of the miraculous vessel is engaged in timbering the hull; she, as it were, imparts to it life and breath, by teaching the steersman (Tiphys) to clothe the towering masts with sails, which are to serve as wings to the vessel.

The goddess sits upon a stool, supported on lion’s paws; and is occupied in attaching, with her own hands, the swelling canvass to the yards, which Tiphys holds in readiness. She has laid aside the gorgon shield, and appears without the aegis. The owl, her faithful attendant, has perched on the stump of a pillar standing behind her. The surrounding landscape is simply indicated by the city-gate leading towards the haven; and by the trunk of an aged tree.

…Argus, son of Phrixus; and Argus, by Athena’s advice, built a ship of fifty oars named Argo after its builder; and at the prow Athena fitted in a speaking timber from the oak of Dodona. When the ship was built, and he inquired of the oracle, the god gave him leave to assemble the nobles of Greece and sail away. -  from Apollodorus, Library 1.9.16

The new Argos catalogue is out here in the UK. It has the “We are monster high” set. The sweet screams dolls as well as Zombie shake and the wave 1 girls. Of course they’re doing that only one supplied nonsense, with several dolls on one order number. so I’ll have to view the dolls beforehand to see which ones they have in stock.
