The Greek gods are known around the world, just like the learnings, history, and classical stories of Ancient Greece. Though some Greek gods are better known than others, there is perhaps no goddess better known than Athena. The goddess of wisdom and warfare, Athena protected cities throughout Ancient Greece and was the patron of the city of Athens.
Athena’s mythology begins with her birth. It’s believed that Athena was birthed from her father Zeus’ herd. When the city of Athens was founded, Athena beat Poseidon in a battle for the city’s patronage — and Athena created the world’s first olive tree as a result. Known as a heroine herself, Athena is believed to have helped Greek heroes like Heracles and Perseus achieve their accomplishments. Athena even appears in Homer’s Iliad, causing the Trojan War thanks to a feud with Hera and Aphrodite.
The Ancient Greeks adored Athena so much that many temples dedicated to her filled Athens and other city-states throughout the empire. The Parthenon, one of Greece’s most famous monuments, is dedicated to the warrior goddess. Soldiers entered battle under Athena’s guidance, and the goddess became a symbol of democracy as well as classical education.
