In Greek mythology Athena or Athene ( /in/ or /ini/; Attic: , Athn or , Athnaia; Epic: , Athnai; Ionic: , Athn; Doric: , Athana), also referred to as Pallas Athena/Athene ( /pls/; ; ), is the goddess of wisdom, civilization, warfare, strength, strategy, crafts, justice and skill. Minerva, Athena's Roman incarnation, embodies similar attributes.[4] Athena is also a shrewd companion of heroes and the goddess of heroic endeavour. She is the virgin patron of Athens. The Athenians built the Parthenon on the Acropolis of her namesake city, Athens, in her honour (Athena Parthenos).[4]Athena's veneration as the patron of Athens seems to have existed from the earliest times, and was so persistent that archaic myths about her were recast to adapt to cultural changes. In her role as a protector of the city (polis), many people throughout the Greek world worshiped Athena as Athena Polias ( "Athena of the city"). Athens and Athena bear etymologically connected names.[5]
