Arachne is a good wool producer who lives in a village. Her wools are of great quality and people say that it is goddess Athena who taught her to wool.
Goddess Athena visited her to remind of her bad attitude by disguising to be an old woman.
Suddeny, the old woman changed into a a beautiful goddess Athena and everyone was shocked.
Arachne challenged the goddess Athena to a weaving contest. Both of their products are beautiful!
Unfortunately, the goddess was offended by theadditional images Arachne added to her wool.The goddess Athena got mad at what happened!In anger, Athena ripped Arachne's tapestries the she struck Arachne accross her face.
Out of madness, Athena made Arachne into a spider. All the spiders came from Arachne. Greeks remembers the weaving contest and Arachne's pride.
