Description

ATHENA, GODDESS OF WISDOM & WAR, HER ATTRIBUTE THE OWL

Athena and the Owl: (455-449 B.C.) (24mm 11g)
HISTORY
The Mark of Athena was a coin that the goddess Athena gave to a select few of her demigod offspring to avenge her against the Romans for stealing her sacred statue. The coin leads its possessor to the Athena Parthenos in Rome, where Athena's rival, Arachne, was guarding the statue in a chamber. Every few generations, if Athena considers one of her children worthy, she gives them a silver drachma. The image of Athena's sacred animal, an owl, appears and "guides" the possessor to the statue.
Percy Jackson Book
“The Heroes of Olympus”

THE MARK OF ATHENA
It is shown that Athena had given Annabeth Chase the coin prior to the events of the book. She had told Annabeth to follow it and "avenge her," or else she was no child of hers. The coin ultimately leads Annabeth to the Athena Parthenos, where she faces Arachne, the greatest fear of the children of Athena.

ATHENA is the Greek goddess of wisdom, war, the arts, industry, justice & skill. She was the favorite child of Zeus and Metis, the goddess of wisdom and Zeus' first wife. Athena and her uncle Poseidon both loved a certain city in Greece. Both claimed the city and it was decided that one that could give the greatest gift could claim the city. Poseidon struck the side of the cliff with his trident and a spring welled up. The water however was salty as the sea and was not very useful. Athena's gift was an olive tree, she prevailed since the olive tree provided food, oil and wood. Athena named her city Athens. Her attribute is the owl.
