Heroku supports a number of Python versions:

https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/python-support#supported-python-runtimes

I'm not sure how to list *every* supported Python version (the docs
only list the latest 2.7 and the latest 3.x at any given time), but I
poked around in https://lang-python.s3.amazonaws.com/ and found a
large number of versions that appear to be installable. You specify a
version with a file in your repository called "runtime.txt", and
they'll give you that version if they can, or kick back an error.
