Description


Fierce and beautiful, she still today brings with her a breath of Ice Age mystery. With minor variations, she is Athena, Joan of Arc, Marianne of the Barricades, and Rosie the Riveter. The Ionians worshipped her since at least Neolithic times. When the Greeks founded the chief city of Attica during the Iron Age, they named their city after her: Athens. Atop the city's high hill, they created a sanctuary dedicated to her, and named its chief temple the Parthenon, which means Temple of the Virgin. This article ties together evidence from the Ice Ages through ancient Greece, Rome, and the Middle Ages, right up to modern times, showing that her cult has been around as long as mankind.
