Athena Greek Goddess

The Ancient Greek goddess Athena / Athene / Pallas-Athene, known as Minerva by the Romans, was the goddess of war, but also of wisdom.

In early, archaic portraits of Athena in black-figure pottery, the goddess retains some of her Minoan-Mycenaean character, such as great bird wings, although this is not true of archaic sculpture such as those of Aphaean Athena, where Athena has subsumed an earlier, invisibly numinous—Aphaea—goddess with Cretan connections in her mythos.

In classical depictions, Athena is usually portrayed standing upright, wearing a full-length chiton. She is sometimes dressed in armor, and is often represented wearing a Corinthian helmet raised high atop her forehead. Her shield bears at its centre the aegis with the head of the gorgon (gorgoneion) in the center and snakes around the edge. It is in this standing posture that she was depicted in Phidias’s famous lost gold and ivory statue of her, 36 m tall, the Athena Parthenos in the Parthenon.
