Chapter 08 The Peloponnesian War The decade of fighting that stretched from to BC seemed like a discrete entity in itself and was named after the Spartan king Archidamus. Pericles devised an ingenious defensive strategy. He convinced the Athenians to harass Peloponnesian territory with their navy and had the Athenian farmers abandon their land and huddle inside the Long Walls.
Hephaestus, with his ax, may have facilitated the birth. The occasion was awesome as Athena sprang forth fully grown, a beautiful young woman in full armor, fearlessly announcing her arrival with a thunderous war-cry. A dread goddess of war, she remained a virgin.
She is associated with the owl and the snake. She is usually represented with helmet, spear, and shield or aegis that bore a depiction of the head of Medusa.
Athena herself as victorious war goddess was called Chapter 08tif Nike and the simple but elegant temple of Athena Nike stands to the right of the entrance to the Acropolis. The contest took place on the Chapter 08tif. Poseidon struck the rock with his trident and produced a salt spring or a horse.
Athena brought forth an olive tree from the ground by the touch of her spear and she was proclaimed the victor. The olive was fundamental to Athenian economy and life. A Panathenaic procession wound its way through the city ending with the presentation of an embroidered robe peplos to Athena on the Acropolis.
Athenians young and old, male and female carrying sacred implements, leading sacrificial animals, with chariots or on horseback, figured in the procession. It is a most beautiful Doric temple even in its ruined state todayand its sculpture created under the aegis of the great Athenian sculptor Pheidias bears tribute to Athena herself and her city and all that they mean forever.
East pediment: the dramatic moment of the birth of Athena, who stood in the center before the throne of Zeus, from whose head she had just spring, fully grown and fully armed. Other divine figures are present at the miracle.
At the corners, the horses of Helius the Sun and those of Selene the Moon set the momentous event in cosmic time. West pediment: the contest between Athena and Poseidon, described above; these two central figures pull away from each other as they produce the gifts with which they vie.
On either side, figures of Athenian divinities and heroic kings are witnesses. Doric frieze: on the exterior are metopes relief sculpture depicting four subjects: the battle between the Lapiths and the Centaurs; the sack of Troy; the Gigantomachy; and the battle between the Greeks and the Amazons.
Ionic frieze: in the interior, on the outer wall of the naos or cellacontinuous relief sculpture renders the splendid Panathenaic procession described above.
Athenian men and women are shown as marshals, attendants, horsemen, hoplites and assistants in the worship, along with the animals of ritual sacrifice.
At the climax the ceremonial robe is presented to a priestess of Athena while, on either side, enthroned Olympian deities witness the joyous celebration of civic piety. The Athena Parthenos: this monumental statue of Athena stood in the cella or naos. The surfaces of the standing goddess were made of gold and ivory and she held a figure of Nike Victory in her right hand; she wore a helmet and the aegis with the head of Medusa, and a spear and shield are at her side; elaborate decorative reliefs enhanced the statue, which has not survived.
As the result of a quarrel, Athena impulsively wounded Pallas. Pallas died and Athena was distraught when she fully realized what she had done.
Through the agency of Zeus this Palladium fell into the territory of the Trojans, where, as a talisman, it carried with it the destiny of their city.
She quickly grew to dislike her invention because her beautiful cheeks became distorted when she blew into the instrument, and so she threw it away. Arachne was foolish enough not to admit that Athena was her teacher and challenged her to a contest. Disguised as an old woman, Athena warned Archane about the danger of her hubris but Arachne persisted.
Athena in anger threw off her disguise and accepted the challenge. She wove at her loom, with surpassing skill, a tapestry depicting noble scenes from mythology. Grief-stricken, Arachne strangled herself with a noose, but Athena took pity and transformed her into a spider; as such, she and her descendants practice the art of weaving forever.vetted with CMS (see Pub.

Chapter Athena. THE BIRTH OF ATHENA. Zeus swallowed his consort METIS [mee'tis] (“wisdom”), after he had made her pregnant, because he feared that she would bear a son who would overthrow him. And so ATHENA [a-thee'na], or ATHENE (MINERVA), was born from the holy head of Zeus.
