Hera of Samos is a form of Hera known on the Greek island of Samos, where She had a great temple. Well, it’s technically Greek; but really it’s not even a mile off the southwestern coast of modern Turkey (ancient Anatolia). She was originally an indigenous Goddess of the island Who was equated with the Greeks with their Hera; Her original name has not come down to us.

She is shown here after images on coins—which being tiny do leave a bit to interpretation—with garlands of poppy-pods and pomegranates, both of which were found as votive offerings at Her temple.

For my paintings of other so-called pillar Goddesses, try the Aphrodite of Aphrodisias, Atargatis, and two images of Ephesian Artemis here and here.
