Poseidon and Athena Wants The Same Town
Settling Who Gets The Town
Athena was the goddess of wisdom. She could get angry, but more typically, she was wise, and kind, and understanding. Athena held a powerful position in the ancient Greek god world. She was an Olympian, one of the council of 12, who held a seat on Mount Olympus. She also had a home there. Here is a myth about Athena that shows how clever and practical she was.
Poseidon loved watching over towns. He usually picked coastal towns since he was the Lord of the Sea. He was not the only god who loved to be in charge. Athena, along with other gods, enjoyed that role as well. One day, both Athena and Poseidon claimed a new village.
Poseidon wanted the people to choose which god they wanted. But the people did not want to choose. They could see only trouble ahead if they did. Athena, goddess of wisdom, daughter of Zeus, understood their worry. She challenged her uncle Poseidon to a contest. Both gods would give the town a gift. The townspeople could decide which gift was the more useful.
