The Greek goddess Athena's most important symbol was the owl which represents wisdom. Athena's other symbols were snakes, mulberry, and olive trees. According to legend, Athena earned the city Athens during a competition with her uncle, Poseidon, by giving the city an olive tree.

In Greek mythology, Triton was the son of Poseidon, god of the sea, and Amphitrite, goddess of the sea. Pallas is either the son or daughter of Triton, depending on the source material. Pallas was a titan who acted as a foster parent to Zeus' daughter, Athena. Athena was the goddess of truth, wisdom, and war. When Pallas was slain by Athena, she adopted her name, gaining her power, and after was known as Pallas Athena. Pallas or Pallas Athena's symbol is similar to that of the symbol for Venus (woman) but with a diamond shaped top instead of a circle. When this symbol is used in modern Astrology, Pallas is Cancer in House IX. She represents intelligence, abstract, and global thinking talents. It is usually considered to be a determining element in political strategy. Note that the city of Athens, also named from Athena, is known as the first democracy. Asteroids have historically been given female names. The asteroid called Pallas was discovered by Heinrich Wilhelm Olbers on March 28, 1802. It is one of the largest known asteroids and the largest of the Pallas family. It was named after Pallas Athena. Prior to 1855, the astrological symbol was used for this asteroid. After, asteroids were referenced by their discovery number circled. Since Ceres was the first asteroid discovered, Pallas has the number 2 in a circle as its symbol. Sometimes this is written out as "2 Pallas."

What was Athenas weapon?

Athena's main weapon was her intellect and her knowledge in combat, she is usually Zeus's strategist when it came to war. Besides that she carries the Aegis, a shield that Zeus also used, the shield represents the face of Medusa, foes that look upon it are usually either stricken with fear or driven back by it. She also favored a spear to go with her shield as she fought, and when she did fight she was as deadly as Ares. I hoped this helped.
