This is Athena. She is Zeus's favorite child and one of the most powerful of the 12 Olympian gods.
She has a whole city dedicated to her, which is Athens, and in that city is the Parthenon. Inside the Parthenon is a giant statue of Athena. It is said to keep away evil creatures like spirits.
In order to "win" Athens she touched her spear to the ground and made an olive tree sprout up. Poseidon had made a salt water spring pop up but the city of Athens chose Athena over Poseidon.
The Owl stands for wisdom and watchfulness.
Athena's two sacred animals are the Crow and the Snow Owl.
Athena has three symbols; the aegis is Athena's shield which represents her protective power. The helmet and the spear both symbolize that wisdom and strategy is to victory in war.

Athena created many useful items, such as the potter's wheel, vase, horse bridle, chariot, and ship. Athena even tried musical instruments. She created the flute to imitate the wailing of the Gorgons when Medusa was killed.
