Athena:-The Greek Goddess

Athena is the Greek virgin goddess of reason, expression, literature and arts. Athena is the little daughter of Zeus. She sprang full developed in Armor from his forehead, hence has no mother. She is savage and brave in battle but, just wars to characterize the state and home from outside adversaries. She is the goddess of the city, handiwork, and farming. She created the bridle, which allowed man to tame horses, the trumpet, the ship, the pot, the rake, the flute, the plow, the yoke and the chariot. She is the epitome of intelligence, reason, and virtue. She was Zeus' most loved youngster and was permitted to use her weapons including her thunderbolt. Her most loved city is Athens. Her tree is the olive. The owl is her winged creature.

Athena’s Birth

Zeus came to desire for Métis, and pursued her in his intelligent way. Métis attempted to escape, going so far as to change her form many times and Transformed into different animals, for example, sells, fish, and serpents. Nonetheless, Zeus was both decided and similarly capable at evolving structure. He preceded his interest until she relented.

An Oracle of Gaea then forecasted that Metis first kid would be a young girl but, her second child would be a boy that would oust Zeus as had happened to his father and grandfather. Zeus took this warning to heart. When he next saw Metis he complimented her and put her at her ease. At that point with Metis daydreaming Zeus abruptly opened his mouth and swallowed her. This was the end of Metis at the same time, perhaps the start of Zeus' intelligence.

After some time Zeus developed the mother of all headaches. He yelled so noisily it could be heard all through the earth. Alternate divine beings came to see what the issue was. Hermes acknowledged what required to be carried out and guided Hephaestus to take a wedge and open Zeus' skull. Out of the skull sprang Athena, full grown and in a full set of Armor. Because of her manner and birth of place, she has dominion over all things of the intellect.
