Athena was remade as the favorite daughter of Zeus, born fully armed from his forehead
Athena never had a consort or lover and thus, also was known as Athena Parthenos, "Virgin Athena".
In poetry from Homer, an oral tradition of the eighth or seventh century BC, onward, Athena's most common epithet is glaukopis (γλαυκώπις), which usually is translated as, bright-eyed or with gleaming eyes. The word is a combination of glaukos (γλαύκος, meaning gleaming, silvery, and later, bluish-green or gray) and ops (ώψ, eye, or sometimes, face). It is interesting to note that glaux (γλαύξ, "owl") is from the same root, presumably because of the bird's own distinctive eyes. The bird which sees well in the night is closely associated with the goddess of wisdom:
The statue, a gift to the United States from the people of France, is of a robed female figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, who bears a torch and a tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law) upon which is inscribed the date of the American Declaration of Independence. A broken chain lies at her feet. The statue has become an iconic symbol of freedom and of the United States.

A fine creation. And, thank you for the wonderful narrative. The subject of your narrative is not taught in our schools which instead chooses to dumb down "freedom" to be something less. Thank you for helping me to become free.
This post goes into my favs. Thank you again.
