According to mythology...
As the myth dictates, Αthena, the goddess of wisdom, was born out of the all-powerful Zeus’s head.
According to yet another version, she was born in Crete from a cloud that Zeus struck with a lightning.
Goddess Athena and Poseidon, god of the seas, contested as to who would become ruler of Attica and Gods were to decide on the outcome based on the offers those two would make to the city.
Poseidon pierced the rock with his trident and saltwater started running, while goddess Athena pierced the soil with her spear and out came the evergreen olive tree offering its blessed fruit to mankind.
After her victory, the goddess gave her name to the city of Athens.
Dimitra (Demeter), one of the oldest goddesses of the Ancient Greek pantheon, daughter of Cronus and Rea, was the goddess of fertility and vegetation, goddess-patron of the earth; along with her daughter, Persephone, they held a key role to Eleusinian Mysteries.
According to mythology, when Pluto, god of the earth’s riches and king of the underworld, led on a golden chariot Persephone to his underworld kingdom, Dimitra left the mountain of Olympus and started wondering amidst people looking for her daughter, Persephone, until Zeus sent Hermes with a message to Pluto ordering him to set her daughter free.
Thanks to Dimitra’s return, the plants sprang from the earth’s soil, the crops grew and the slopes turned green with vegetation.
