Why did Athena die?
Athena, the goddess, didn't die. She was immortal.
Athena was the goddess of wisdom. She also represented war, but not violentely. She stood for stratic defense and refused to fight in cold blood. Once, when Achilles (a young warrior) was about to rush into a battle that he would most certanally die in, Athena restrained him bu pulling his hair. Her symbol was an owl, a shield with the gorgon medusa's head on it,and an olive tree.
