Sterling Silver Ancient Coin Charm with Athena's Owl. Replica of an ancient Greek coin. In Greek mythology Athena is the goddess of war, civilization, wisdom, strength, strategy, crafts, justice and skill. In Homeric poetry, Athena's most common epithet translates to bright-eyed or with gleaming eyes, much like an owl. Many scholars argue that Athena is the owl herself - she is wisdom.
