In Greek mythology, Athena (also spelt Athene, Attic: Ἀθηνᾶ, Athēnâ or Ἀθηναία, Athēnaía, Epic: Ἀθηναίη, Athēnaíē, Ionic: Ἀθήνη, Athḗnē, Doric: Ἀθάνα, Athána;) is the goddess of wisdom, peace, warfare, strategy, handicrafts and reason, shrewd companion of heroes and the goddess of heroic endeavour. She is the virgin patron of Athens, which built the Parthenon to worship her. Information from the English Wikipedia Athena.
The Roman deity Minerva is thought to share a common root with Athena, coming to Italy (it is thought), via Etruria. For this reason depictions of both Athena and Minerva often show many similarities. See English Wikipedia Minerva.
