Detailed view of the name "Hera" that is impressed on an anchor stock that is on display in the Museo Nazionale della Magna Grecia in Reggio di Calabria.

The name Hera is spelled out in upper case Greek letters but in reverse order! "ΑΡΗ" Hera was the wife of Zeus and the goddess of women, marriage, family, and childbirth.

It was evidently found in the sea in the vicinity of Reggio di Calabria.  To view another inscribed anchor stock—from Malta—click here.
