Ara was a pregnant woman on the road to Nemea. Her husband had recently died and she was on her way to her parents' home to have her baby. She encountered Hercules and Spiro en route and they offered her a ride. She told Hercules that an oracle predicted her child was a boy and that she intended to name him after his father.

Ara told Hercules where to find Zeno when the hero wanted to track him and Iolaus.

Ara means "altar" in Latin.
