Transcript of Athena vs. Poseidon

Athena vs. Poseidon Athena and Poseidon both wanted to be the patron god
On the verge of war
Zeus suggested an alternate and less destructive plan.
Both Athena and Poseidon provide the people with a gift
The gift that is most favored will be named patron Gods and people gathered to witness the contest.
Poseidon is first
Striking the ground with his staff, water began to pour from the earth creating a saltwater spring.
A promise for naval supremacy as well as good fortune for anglers Athena presented next
Placed a seed in the ground,
Full-grown olive tree immediately burst from the dirt.
Olives could be used for food, oil for cooking and keeping warm, and had medicinal effects. After carefully considering the gifts, the people of the city almost unanimously decided that Athena’s gift was the best, and so the city was named Athens. http://us.123rf.com/400wm/400/400/citylights/citylights0611/citylights061100015/600609-ripe-olives-on-olive-tree-branch.jpg The Story http://thumbs.dreamstime.com/thumblarge_413/1246184683u6xwiB.jpg https://d27fcql9yjk2c0.cloudfront.net/assets/272478/lightbox/7dd97f8dea0f9c83b96cad9548a7b91c.jpg?1276941131 The goddess of wisdom, war tactics, and crafts
