The god of the sea is back!
Athena Minerva Athena was the virgin goddess of arts, craft and war. Also known as Athene, she was also identified as the Roman goddess, Minerva.
Athena was daughter of Zeus and his first wife Metis wisdomwho was the daughter of Oceanus and Tethys. After Zeus had overthrown his father Cronus and became supreme ruler of heaven, Gaea warned her grandson that if Metis has a second child, it would be a son.
Zeus was told that this son would one day overthrow him, as he had done to his own father Cronus. Not wanting to suffer the same fate as his father, he swallowed Metis, while she was still pregnant.
Months later, Zeus suffered from a great headache. Either Prometheus or Hephaestus used an axe to split open Zeus' head. Athena leaped out of Zeus' head, wearing full armour and uttering a war cry. The gods were astonished and profoundly alarmed at this prodigy. It was only when she removed her helm, that Athena revealed herself to be less formidable in aspect.
Athena became Zeus' favourite child. She was often referred to as Pallas Athene. There are several sources of where Athena got her name "Pallas" from. Apollodorus wrote that Tritonson of Poseidon, raised Athena as she was growing up. Athena was sometimes known by her epithet, Tritogeneia - "thrice born", either because of Triton or because she grew up at Lake Tritonis, in Libya.
Triton had a daughter named Pallas, who became a playmate for Athena. The young goddess was playing with her friend, when Athena accidentally killed her.
In memory of her childhood playmate, she put her friend's name before her own.
However, her father Zeus thrown the statue out of heaven and it landed in the tent of Ilusthe son of King Tros of Dardania. In another myth, where the Olympians fought against the giants, where they were aided by Heracles, Athean killed a giant named Pallas, whom the goddess flayed giant, and wore his skin that protect her.
And it is from this battle, that she got her name. Apollodorus wrote both versions of Athena gaining the name Pallas. There is some confusion over the origin and meaning of the name Pallas. Pallas is a name that can be applied to either male or female character.Poseidon, named for “the god of the sea,” has become the mid-island destination for the best dining, shopping and entertainment.
