Disagreement still reigns over the significance that Hera’s cult had in Euboea in the Archaic period with some scholarship claiming that she was the primary deity of the Euboeans and other arguing that the goddess’ Euboean associations can only be found in sources that, because of their lateness, are to be considered of dubious value. In the present paper, it is argued that, in fact, there exists a combination of literary, epigraphic and numismatic evidence that firmly places Hera in Euboea in the Archaic period as does further evidence from the oldest Euboean western settlements, Pithecusae and Cumae. The available evidence indicates that her personality and zones of influence diverge considerably from those commonly associated with her in the Classical period.
