GODDESS OF PEACE AND WISDOM
Athena was the goddess of wisdom, war strategy, peace, and prudent intelligence. She was able to bestow command, skill, courage, and victory to those who listened to her persuasive words. She promoted prosperity and was compassionate and generous.
Athena was the protector of towns. Her statue, the Palladium, protected the city of Troy where she was worshipped. Also, the city Athens is named after Athena. She and Poseidon both wanted to city but she gave them the best gift so she got to name it.
Athena was not described as beautiful but she was described as tall and majestic. She was called "the goddess with grey eyes."
