Best Answer

The Odyssey is the epic tale that tells us the story of brave Odysseus and his adventures. In this tale appears the Goddess Athena, she is the Goddess of wisdom and also the goddess of battle. She is in charge of helping the hero in the many problems he gets involved, although her support is from afar, since she doesn't participate directly in the action, but she always express her support for Odysseus and his resources.
