Back in time when Greece was making its mark in history as one of the great civilizations of the Ancient World, there was a great deal of emphasis on the Gods and Goddesses. To the Greeks the world was governed by the Gods and they were the reason many things happened in the world, mostly thing that where unexplainable. The goddess Athena was one of the many gods or goddesses that played a large role in Greek mythology. Even though Athena was the patron saint of Athens she supported other Greeks outside of Athens, such as, Achilles, Orestes, and especially Odysseus (“Athena”-1). Athena is known to be the goddess of war, guardian of cities, patroness of arts and crafts, and promoter of wisdom.
