ATHENA By: Isaac martinez

The summary of Athena was that she was a great leader and knew how to rule a city. She was born straight out of Zeus forehead covered in armor and a sword. She was best known for beating Poseidon in a contest to get the city of Mycenae which later got renamed Athens. She gave to the people which led to the greatness of her city. “Both Athena and Poseidon wanted to be patron deity of Athens. To prove her worthiness for the honor, Athena caused an olive tree to spring up on the citadel of Athens, the Acropolis.” (Mythweb.com)

Heroic: “She is known most specifically for her strategic skill in warfare and is often portrayed as companion of heroes” (greekmythology.com) This trait describes my goddess because she would protect her city and wouldn’t be afraid of anything that came upon her

Wise: Athena’s gift was an olive tree, which was better because it gave the people food, oil and wood.” (pantheon.org) Athena is wise because she knew how to win her city and thought about her people instead of just thinking about herself

Brave: “she only took part in wars that defended the state and home from outside enemies. She was the patron of the city” (greekmythology.com) Would go into battle without any complains and would always come back she only took place in battles that defended the state

The theme of Athena's myth is that she cares more about the people of her city and is willing to give rather then just caring about herself. The ancient Greeks valued water and food. That's why Athena's olive tree won her the contest.

Athena is the most wise and brave goddess that ever lived.
