    Goddess Athena, the so-called Pallas Athena, was the Patroness of Scholars, Philosophers, Crafts Workers and Soldiers. She was the daughter of Zeus and Titaness Metis. Never married, forever and avowed virgin. Her symbols are the owl and the olive Branch. She was wise, truthful, knowledgeable and pensive, yet ruthless in battle and to those who defied her.

    Known to be a great mistress of all forms of invention, Athena created many objects including the flute, trumpet, farm tools, and the olive tree. After providing the city of Athens with bountiful olive trees, she was soon regarded and revered as the Patron Goddess of their City.

    In Greek mythology, a little owl (Athene noctua) traditionally represents or accompanies Athena. Because of such association, the bird — often referred to as the owl of Athena or the owl of Minerva has been used as a symbol of knowledge, wisdom, perspicacity, and erudition throughout the Western world.
