Storyboard Text

  • I believe I would be the perfect god to watch over this town...
  • I would be better, obviously! I'm the god of the sea, after all!
  • How about we see who can give them the best gift? That will decide who watches over this town!
  • Okay! It's on!
  • Here's my gift - A stream with the freshest water!
  • In the land of Rome, every town had to be watched over by a god. For one coastal town, there was an argument for who would watch over it - Athena, the goddess of wisdom, or Poseidon, god of the sea.
  • I present you my olive tree!
  • Athena then came up with a plan to determine who would watch over the town. Each of them would give a gift, and the person that gave the best gift would get to watch the town.
  • I declare the winner...Athena!
  • Poseidon began, and made a stream near the village. However, it was saltwater, so the villagers could not drink it, or do anything with it.
  • We'll name this town Athens - in honor of Athena!
  • Athena then showed her gift - an olive tree. The olives were edible, and could also be made into oil. The wood was useful for building other items, and more trees could be planted. 
  • However, the villagers were to afraid to speak their opinion, as they were afraid they would anger the god of the sea. So they let Poseidon choose instead...and he declared Athena the winner!
  • Athena watched over the village, and the villagers decided to name the town Athens, as a tribute to her and her knowledge.
