In Greek mythology, Athena or Athene ( /əˈθiːnə/ or /əˈθiːniː/; Attic: θην, Athēnā or θηναία, Athēnaia; Epic: θηναίη, Athēnaiē; Ionic: θήνη, Athēnē; Doric: θάνα, Athana), also referred to as Pallas Athena/Athene ( /ˈpæləs/; Παλλς θην; Παλλς θήνη), is the goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, warfare, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, justice, and skill. Minerva, Athena's Roman incarnation, embodies similar attributes. [4] Athena is also a shrewd companion of heroes and is the goddess of heroic endeavour. She is the virgin patron of Athens. The Athenians built the Parthenon on the Acropolisof her namesake city, Athens (Athena Parthenos), in her honour. [4]

Athena's veneration as the patron of Athens seems to have existed from the earliest times, and was so persistent that archaic myths about her were recast to adapt to cultural changes. In her role as a protector of the city (polis), many people throughout the Greek world worshiped Athena as Athena Polias (θην Πολιάς "Athena of the city"). Athens and Athena bear etymologically connected names. [5]
