Product Description
Athena appeared in many Greek myths, having major roles in Homer's Iliad and Odyssey and in ancient plays dealing with justice and democracy. Born from Zeus' head, she was a contradictory figure in many ways. She was the goddess of war and a protector of civilization. She was capable of being a good friend to humans, yet she could also be fiercely vindictive and hand out punishment to men and women alike without a second thought. Temples were raised to her throughout Greece - including the famous Parthenon. The city of Athens, a military power and cultural centre, embodied the goddesss for whom it was named.
