Transcript of Athena

Athena Why this topic?? I knew a little about Athena already, and wanted to find out more. I thought it would be an interesting topic to study. Key Facts! Goddess of crafts, war, agriculture and the domestic arts. Patron goddess of Athens. Her symbol is the owl. And later the goddess of wisdom. Appearance: A young woman wearing a helmet and holding a shield. She was born from the forehead of the father, Zeus. Roman Name: Minerva She was very fond of Odysseus. Other than that, she really didn't develope many relationships. Creator of the olive and the olive tree Athena's Birth Daughter of Zeus and Metis Zeus was not the type of god to stay with one woman. Not long after he had an affair with Metis, she became pregnant. A prophecy at that time stated that Metis would give birth to a son, and he would pose a severe threat to Zeus. As soon as Metis revealed to Zeus that she was pregnant, he swallowed her to prevent this prophecy to be fullfilled. After nine months, Zeus started to experience extremely painful headaches. He asked the Gods' smith Hephaestus for help. Hephaestus then split open his head with an axe. Out of his head came Athena, she was already a full-grown adult and held a shield. From her first moments in the world, she became Zeus' favorite child. "Inventions" Athena is known as the protectress of agriculture, and is seen as the inventor of the plough and the rake. She created the olive and the olive tree. She is also connected with inventions for various kinds of science, industry, and art. Athena is said also to have invented almost every kind of work in which women were employed. Emma at work! By: Emily Blechl World History THE END!
