Athena Role In Odysseus In Homer's Odyssey

99 Words1 Page
Athena - she is considered as the daughter of Zeus and goddess of wisdom, purposeful battle, and the womanly arts. Athena assists Odysseus and Telemachus with divine powers throughout the epic, and she speaks up for them in the councils of the gods on Mount Olympus. Without Athena, odysseus would probably not be in the story anymore. Without Athena’s help, Odysseus could have been hurt by the unfriendly (toward foreigners) Phaeacians. But thanks to Athena, he was fine. Overall, Odysseus would not be pictured to be such a heroic and brave figure if it wasn 't for the goddess Athena.
