Adorations for Athēna


Khairete!

I decided to jump on the bandwagon; several bloggers have compiled a list of adorations towards some Gods. So I thought I’d make some for Athēna, who is my patron as she is a Goddess of science, education, scholarship, and philosophy. The other adorations-posts can be found in the Related Articles section at the bottom of the article.

  1. I adore you, Pallas.

The goddess has a prominent Gorgon's head set in the shoulder of her aigis - a snake-trimmed protective cloak. She also holds a shield and spear, and wears a high-crested helm upon her head.
