Athena, The Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum

Athena was the goddess of wisdom and knowledge, strategy and war, poetry, drama, crafts, weaving and the fine arts. She helped various gods, goddesses, and heroes as they went into battle or faced seemingly impossible tests. Nike, the goddess who personified Winged Victory, often accompanied Athena. Not surprising, since Athena never lost a battle.
