She was the protector and patron of the City of Athens that was named after her. The Athenians built the Parthenon on the Acropolis for her glory. Athena or Athene, also referred to as Pallas Athena/ Athene is the Greek Goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, just warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill. Romans identified the goddess as Minerva. Plato identified her with the Egyptian deity Neith. Her form has been used to depict Britannia. In mythology is portrayed as a shadowy companion of heroes and is the patron goddess of heroic endeavour. She is the virgin patroness of Athens. The Athenians founded the Parthenon on the Acropolis of her namesake city, Athens(Athena Parthenos). In the version of the founding myths, Athena competed with Poseidon (God of Sea) to be the patron deity of Athens, which was yet unnamed. They agreed that each one would give the Athenians on gift and the citizens will choose the gift they preferred. Poseidon struck the ground with his trident and a salt water spring sprang out. This gave them the means of water and trade. Athena, however, offered them the first domesticated olive tree. The citizens accepted the olive tree and with it the patronage of Athena, for the olive tree brought wood, oil and food.
