Athena and Arachne

Gifts from the Gods Summary

Arachne thinks she's better than Athena at weaving. So, they declared a contest to see who is better. Athena saw Arachne's picture and was furious so she struck Arachne with her shuttle and she turned into a spider. That's how the name Arachnophobia (the fear of spiders) was invented.
