Graea is a genus of Araneidae, described by Thorell in 1870.


Graea or Graia is a region, or a city of ancient Greece that is placed under Boeotia in Homer's Catalogue of Ships; it seems to have included the city of Oropos, though by the fifth century BC it was probably a kome of that city. According to Pausanias the name was a shortcut of the original name Tanagraia, who was daughter of Asopos. Graia was a greater area including Avlida, Mycalissos, Arma etc. It is also described by some sources as a city; Fossey argues for its identification with the hill of Dhrámesi 8 km from Tanagra, while others suggest it is identical with Oropos itself.
