Athena
Athena-Athena is the daughter of Zeus. She sprang
full grown in armour from his forehead, thus
has no mother. She is fierce and brave in
battle but, only wars to defined the state and
home from outside enemies. She is the goddess
of the city, handicrafts, and agriculture. She
invented the bridle, which permitted man to
tame horses, the trumpet, the flute, the pot,
the rake, the plow, the yoke, the ship, and the
chariot. She is the embodiment of wisdom,
reason, and purity. She was Zeus's favorite
child and was allowed to use his weapons
including his thunderbolt. Her favorite city is
Athens. Her tree is the olive. The owl is her
bird. She is a virgin goddess.
