Athena protected and helped Perseus in his impossible task, to kill the Gordon Medusa. Perseus indeed managed to fulfill his task, and offered Medusa's head to Athena, as a thank you gift for her valuable help. Athena placed the face of Medusa on her breast plate. She was brave and had the courage to fight, particularly about strategizing about how to win the war.She also had the ability to change shape and disguise herself. Finally, she had the skills of weaving, sewing, and making cloth. Because she had so many roles, Athena was one of the most significant gods in the ancient Greek culture, especially to the city of Athens. One of the things that she did for all of the Greek people was that she taught them arts and crafts. She also taught the ancient Greeks about the justice part of war. she contributed to her city in many ways. Athena was accredited with several inventions which she gave to Athens, including the plow, the rake, the chariot, and the art of navigation. Admired and celebrated, Athena really had a significant role in the Greek mythology and in the lives of the Athenians and all Greeks.

Leading a procession of citizens, the two gods mounted the acropolis. Posiden struck the side of the cliff with his trident and a spring welled up. The people marveled, but the water was as salty as Posidens seas and wasn't very useful. Athena's gift was an olive tree, which was better because it gave the people food, oil and wood. Athena named her city Athens.
