For the genus of butterfly, see Acraea (genus).
- Acraea was a daughter of the river-god Asterion near Mycenae, who together with her sisters Euboea and Prosymna (Πρόσυμνα) acted as nurses to Hera. A hill Acraea opposite the temple of Hera near Mycenae derived its name from her.
- Acraea and Acraeus are also epithets given to various goddesses and gods whose temples were situated upon hills, such as Zeus, Hera, Aphrodite, Pallas, Artemis, and others.
