Athena and Her Attribute the Owl: 455 - 449 B.C. 24 mm 11g. THE MARK OF ATHENA It is shown that Athena had given Annabeth Chase the coin prior to the events of the book. She had told Annabeth to follow it and "avenge her," or else she was no child of hers. The coin ultimately leads Annabeth to the Athena Parthenos, where she faces Arachne, the greatest fear of the children of Athena. THE COIN Athena & Owl, Greek Classic, Tetradrachm. Athena & Her Attribute, the Owl: (455-449 B.C.) (24mm, 8 g) OBVERSE: Head of Athena wearing a crested helmet with olive leaves and floral scroll. REVERSE: Owl with olive branch and crescent within incuse square. The Crescent moon represents the night and the owl's wisdom to see in the dark. The Olive Branch, which was a common theme in Athenian currency, symbolizes Athena's peaceful victory over Poseidon. The letters AOE is an abbreviation for "of Athenians" ATHENA is the Greek goddess of wisdom, war, the arts, industry, justice & skill. She was the favorite child of Zeus & Metis, the goddess of wisdom and Zeus' first wife. Athena and her uncle Poseidon both loved a certain city in Greece. Both claimed the city and it was decided that one that could give the greatest gift could claim the city. Poseidon struck the side of the cliff with his trident and a spring welled up. The water however was salty as the sea and was not very useful. Athena's gift was an olive tree, she prevailed since the olive tree provided food, oil and wood. Athena named her city Athens. Her attribute is the owl.
