Homeric Hymn to Hera
XII. TO HERA

[1] I sing of golden-throned Hera whom Rhea bare. Queen of the immortals is she, surpassing all in beauty: she is the sister and the wife of loud-thundering Zeus, — the glorious one whom all the blessed throughout high Olympus reverence and honour even as Zeus who delights in thunder.

Orphic Hymn to Hera
[15] XV. TO JUNO [HERA]

The Fumigation from Aromatics.
O Royal Juno [Hera] of majestic mien, aerial-form’d, divine, Jove’s [Zeus’] blessed queen,
Thron’d in the bosom of cærulean air, the race of mortals is thy constant care.
The cooling gales thy pow’r alone inspires, which nourish life, which ev’ry life desires.
Mother of clouds and winds, from thee alone producing all things, mortal life is known:
All natures share thy temp’rament divine, and universal sway alone is thine.
With founding blasts of wind, the swelling sea and rolling rivers roar, when shook by thee.
Come, blessed Goddess, fam’d almighty queen, with aspect kind, rejoicing and serene.

From Apuleius, The Golden Ass 6. 3 ff (trans. Walsh) (Roman novel C2nd A.D.)

Prayer to Hera
‘Sister and spouse of mighty Jupiter [Zeus],
whether you reside in your ancient shrine at Samos,
which alone can pride itself on your birth,
your infant cries,
and your nurture;
or whether you occupy your blessed abode in lofty Carthage,
which worships you as the maiden who tours the sky on a lion’s back [a goddess at Carthage identified with Hera];
or whether you guard the famed walls of the Argives,
by the banks of the river-god Inachus,
who now hymns you as bride of the Thunderer and as queen of all goddesses;
you, whom all the East reveres as the yoking goddess,
and whom all the West addresses as Lucina [goddess of childbirth], be for me in my most acute misfortunes Juno [Hera] the Saviour, and free me from looming dangers in my weariness from exhausting toils.
I am told that it is your practice to lend unsolicited aid to pregnant women in danger.”
