Transcript of athena
Unlike the war God Ares, she was not known for her brutality and bullying behavior. She was more of a strategist and a diplomat
Legends say that Athena was born full-grown and fully-armed from Zeus' head. (this happened because Zeus ate Athena's pregnant mother) which kinda mean she was conceived of thoughts. Her children with human ( demigods ) where born kinda the same way... Athena is Zeus's favorite child because she was the only child who would stay with him when she was older and he likes her because she is wise and fights for peace. :) The sacred owl Athena Athena never had a consort or lover
and is thus known as "Virgin Athena''
Her most famous temple, the Parthenon, is not JUST an observation of her virginity, but a recognition of her role as enforcer of rules of sexual modesty and ritual mystery. Athena's sacred animal is an owl. she is linked with the owl because owls represent wisdom and watchfulness. Everybody needs and arch-enemy and Athena's is Arachne
As the story says Athena was challenged to a contest by Arachne, ( a maiden who had so much skill in weaving and embroidery that the nymphs would leave their groves & fountains to come and look at her work. )
Arachne filled her canvas with similar subjects, wonderfully well done. Athena could not forbear to admire. She struck the web with her shuttle and rent it in pieces; she then touched the forehead of Arachne and made her feel her guilt and shame. She could not endure it and went and hanged herself.
Athena pitied her as she saw her suspended by a rope. so she turned her into a spider.
