ATHENA

ATHENA WAS A GREAT WARRIOR. ATHENA WAS TALL, STRONG, GRACEFUL, GRAY-EYED, AND A FAN
OF OWLS. FROM THE BEGINNING, SHE WAS A PRETTY AMAZING QUEEN. IN FACT, EVEN HER BIRTH
WAS MOST UNUSUAL. ZEUS, THE FATHER OF ALL KINGS AND QUEENS, WAS ALSO ATHENA’S FATHER.
HER MOTHER WAS A MORTAL WOMAN NAMED METIS. OLDER KINGS HAD WARNED ZEUS THAT HE
WOULD BE IN TROUBLE IF METIS GAVE BIRTH TO A DAUGHTER. SO HE SWALLOWED METIS WHOLE.
WHEN IT CAME TIME FOR ATHENA TO BE BORN, SHE SPRANG FULL GROWN OUT OF ZEUS’S HEAD. SHE
WAS COMPLETELY DRESSED IN ARMOR, AS SHE ALWAYS WOULD BE. SHE ALSO CARRIED A SHIELD
AND A SPEAR. AS YOU MIGHT GUESS ABOUT A WOMAN IN ARMOR, SHE WAS A GREAT WARRIOR.
ATHENA WAS ALSO A QUEEN OF WISDOM. SHE TAUGHT PEOPLE ABOUT ARTS AND CRAFTS. SHE ALSO
TAUGHT THEM HOW TO THINK CLEARLY AND LIVE WELL.
ATHENA WAS THE PARAGON OF MANY THINGS. SHE WAS THE PARAGON OF WISDOM, COURAGE, INSPIRATION CIVILIZATION, LAW, JUSTICE,
STRATEGIC WARFARE, MATHEMATICS, STRENGTH, STRATEGY, ARTS, CRAFTS, AND SKILLS. SHE WAS KNOWN MOST SPECIFICALLY FOR HER
STRATEGIC SKILL IN WARFARE AND WAS OFTEN PORTRAYED AS COMPANION OF HEROIC ENDEAVOR.
ATHENA GAVE US THE MESSAGE THAT WE SHOULD ALWAYS WORK HARD AND STRIVE FOR BETTER LIVES AS WARRIORS. WE SHOULD
TEACH PEOPLE OUR SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE THAT WE HAVE SO OTHER PEOPLE CAN ALSO BENEFIT FROM THEM. SHE ALSO TAUGHT US
TO THINK CLEARLY. WITH THE VISION OF ATHENA, ATHENS CITY GREW UP SO STRONG AND WEALTHY. TODAY IT’S THE CAPITAL AND THE
LARGEST CITY OF GREECE. ATHENS IS THE CAPITAL OF GREECE AND HEART OF THE COUNTRY. WHEN YOU WALK AROUND THE CITY, YOU
CAN SEE THE STRUCTURE THAT HAS BEEN HERE FOR OVER 2400 YEARS AND THERE HAS BEEN EVIDENCE FOUND OF THE ANCIENT
CIVILIZATION FROM OVER 3400 YEARS AGO, NAMED AFTER THE GREEK QUEEN OF WISDOM ATHENA. ATHENS CONTAINS SEVERAL SITES
WHICH ACROPOLIS, PARTHENON, THE ANCIENT AGORA, THE ROMAN AGORA, HADRIAN’S LIBRARY AND ARCH AND TEMPLE OF ZEUS.
