  • How Athens Came to Be
  • Once there was a coastal town that both Athena and Poseidon wished to rule
  • Since there couldn't be two gods ruling one town, Poseidon challenged Athena for it. Whoever gave the townspeople the best gift would be the god of that town.
  • I challenge you!
  • I accept.
  • Poseidon had broken a mountain and gave the town a source of water. The townspeople cheered for Poseidon, because they finally had fresh water to drink. Unfortunately, the water was sea water, not fresh water.
  • Athena however, gave the town an olive tree, that provided them with wood to build homes and heat fires, and olives, that would feed the town.
  • In the end, Athena won over the town, and thus named the town Athens, after Athena.
  • The End
