A is for ~ Athena ~











Athena or Athene (pronounced /əˈθiːnə/ or /əˈθiːniː/; Attic: Ἀθηνᾶ, Athēnā or Ἀθηναία, Athēnaia; Epic: Ἀθηναίη, Athēnaiē; Ionic: Ἀθήνη, Athēnē; Doric: Ἀθάνα, Athana; Latin: Minerva), also referred to as Pallas Athena (pronounced /ˈpæləs/), is the goddess of wisdom, war, strategy, industry, justice and skill in Greek mythology. Minerva, Athena's Roman incarnation, embodies similar attributes.[2] Athena is also a shrewd companion of heroes and the goddess of heroic endeavour. She is the virgin patron of Athens. The Athenians built the Parthenon on the Acropolis of her namesake city, Athens, in her honour (Athena Parthenos).

I only thought she was the goddess of wisdom no wonder she is the city's protector with all those attributes.

I'm with Sylvia K, it reminds me of MY trip to Greece. We had such a fabulous time and the people there were so nice. I almost posted pictures of Athena today for ABC Wednesday. :-)
Have a wonderful week.
