The Heraeum stood on a terraced hill at the foot of a bare steep mountain, some forty-five stades north-east of Argos, and but twenty-five south-east from Mycenae, with which it was connected by a sacred road. The temple entered by Cleomenes was burnt down in 423 B. C. (Thuc. iv. 133), and a new one built immediately below it. For a summary of the results of the American excavations cf. Frazer, Paus. iii. 165-79 and v. 561-2. ὁ ἱρεύς. Probably a subordinate attendant (ζάκορος). Cleomenes would hardly have scourged the priestess of Hera (cf. i. 31). For the incident cf. v. 72.
