Transcript of Athena

Goddess of the Domestic Arts, Wisdom, and War Athena Athena invented many things, including the flute, trumpet, war chariot, yoke, plow, the bridle, and the science of mathematics. Why Athena is Awesome Athena helped the great heroes Perseus, Jason, Odysseus, and Heracles in their quests. Athena's Powers Athena has the power of wisdom. She is very smart, strong, and Zeus let her use his thunderbolts. She also can summon olive trees from the ground. Athena Metis, one of Zeus's lovers, was pregnant. Zeus
was informed by Earth that if she bore a son, he
would overthrow him, so he swallowed Metis. Then He got a horrid headache and sprang from Zeus's head in full armor.
