[2012] Aliyah56: greek goddess Athena

Greek Goddesses

The ancient Greeks would pray on their feet, with their hands up to the sky while they were praising Zeus and the other heavenly gods.


Family of AthenaParents: Goddess Athena was a daughter of Zeus, the King of the Gods, and Metis, the first wife of Zeus, who was keeping inside herself all the world's wisdom. Athena never married and had no children.

When Zues found out that his kids would become more powerful then him, he swallowed his wife whole. But his wife's baby was then born out of his forehead, not as a baby but as an adult in her full armour suit. This was Athena.

A statue of Athena.

Aphrodite was the goddess of love and beauty. She was prayed to mostly for reasons of love. Her son was Cupid. She was the aunt of Zues.
