Poseidon

Poseidon and Athena

Posiedon and Athena were competing to lay claim of the city. Poseidon went first to show his powers. He struck the earth powerfully and created a well with his trident. Immediately streaming water shot forth, but the water turned out to be salty and not very useful. Next it was the turn of the goddess Athena. Athena stepped foward and struck her spear into the ground, and then she kneeled and planted an olive branch in it. This way she created an olive tree, as a symbolization of peace and properity. Cecrops was very impressed by Athena's gift. So he chose Athena to lay claim of the city of Athens to and the city was named after her. Poseidon however was not pleased with this decision and cursed the city of Athens to never have enough water. After that it is said that a major problem of water shortage started in athens.
