Athena is the goddess of war and cunning wisdom. She is also the goddess of pot-making and wool-working. She is associated with the city, and almost every town in Greece had a sanctuary dedicated to Athena.

She invented the chariot, the bridle and built the first ship. The olive tree is sacred to her.

Athena supervises the building of the legendary ship, the Argo
