Background Information

In Greek mythology, Athena is the Greek goddess of wisdom, war, the arts, industry, justice and skill.

Legend has it that she leaped from Zeus' head already adult, dressed with her armor.

Athena and her uncle Poseidon were both very fond of a city in Greece. Both of them claimed the city and it was decided that the one that could give the finest gift should have it. Leading a procession of citizens, the two gods mounted the Acropolis. Poseidon struck the side of the cliff with his trident and a spring welled up. The people marveled, but the water was as salty as Poseidon's sea and it was not very useful. Athena's gift was an olive tree, which was better because it gave the people food, oil and wood. Athena named her city Athens.

Her Roman counterpart was Minerva.
