Meet Athena: The Goddess Who Lost 40 Pounds. By Steve Kamb • Last Updated: December 13, 2012 • 81 comments. Meet Bronwyn (AKA Athena ): Rebel, powerlifter, and mother of two (four and six years old).

Bronwyn’s story starts at a familiar place for many Rebels: Stuck in an unhealthy, sedentary routine, struggling to enact permanent changes.

Athena Parthenos is a lost massive chryselephantine sculpture of the Greek goddess Athena, made by Phidias and his assistants and housed in the Parthenon in Athens; this statue was designed as its focal point. Parthenos ‘maiden, virgin’ was an epithet of Athena. There have been many replicas and works inspired by the statue, in both ancient and modern times.

Meet Athena: The Goddess Who Lost 40 Pounds Meet Bronwyn (AKA Athena ): Rebel, powerlifter, and mother of two (four and six years old). Bronwyn started 2012 with a commitment to get healthy. The Greek goddess Athena is usually portrayed as one of the most benevolent goddesses… strong, fair, and merciful.

Athena is known as one of the three virgin goddesses, referred to as virgin because they were able to remain independent, unswayed by the spells of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, and the consequent pull of marriage and motherhood. Athena or Athene, often given the epithet Pallas, is an ancient Greek goddess associated with wisdom, handicraft, and warfare who was later syncretized with the Roman goddess Minerva. Athena was regarded as the patron and protectress of various cities across Greece, particularly the city of Athens, from which she most likely received her name. She’s usually shown in art wearing a helmet and.

As great as Jefferson was, his statue pales in stature next to the 40-foot-tall Athena. She is more than twice his size. Jefferson’s statue is made of bronze; Athena’s, of ivory and gold fashioned around a wooden core.

We honor Jefferson as the man who led the American colonies in declaring independence from the British Crown. Hecate or Hekate (/ ˈ h ɛ k. ə. t i /; Ancient Greek: Ἑκάτη, Hekátē) is a goddess in ancient Greek religion and mythology, most often shown holding a pair of torches or a key and in later periods depicted in triple form. She is variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, night, light, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, ghosts, necromancy, and sorcery. Parthenon, temple that dominates the Acropolis at Athens. It was built in the mid-5th century BCE and dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena Parthenos.

The temple is generally considered to be the culmination of the development of the Doric architectural order.

  • hey i love this soooo much! i’ve looked up choral songs and things like that and I just can’t seem to find this song? it would help me soo much if you could tell me this song, if you know it of course! plus, this edit is just amazing, loved the way you portrayed everyone in this! Spot on!

  • Thia breaks my heart…but feels so much like the world we live into she get taped and she becomes the monster how sad……
    She is still amazing and beautiful ♥

  • Noo, don’t say this is bad! I LOVED it.
    The characters you chose to represent her were perfect matches (Lydia would definitely be Athena, as would Sherlock tbh) and I love the text effects! Great job, thanks for the entry!:D

  • So what I’ve learned that if you hear a story about a god or goddess depicted as immoral or awful the Christian’s turned it that way instead of the goodness the Greeks posed them as lol jk

  • To take about the history, first learn Albania language then you can see. Zeus Montage of Tartari. (Vlore albania.)Dodona Montage of Tomori (Berat albania.)

  • Wow. I used to always believe Athena was the kindest god, always taking pity on mortals and never doing anything vile. I’ve always seen Athena has a just god, and one that is rational and looks at situations fairly. A goddess of justice. (The difference between justice and vengeance is justice is fair punishment, while vengeance is spite) This is the first time I’ve heard of Athena having an evil side to her, and acting on vengeance. In my opinion it’s out of personality for her due to her history of being a goddess of justice, ares being her vengeful counterpart

  • It feels the best way to avoid cruel unjustifiable punishment is just to avoid or speak of the Gods name or appearance in anyway or form

  • WOOOW… why does all gods act childish, i mean u gotta stop playing unfair because someone is prettier than u or better than u at something

  • But like seriously who punish someone for getting rape and turn someone In a spider becoz that person did a better job her actions shouldn’t be justified

  • Very Educative instead of wasting our time on necessary stuff and negative taught we black people should read more abt our history and heritage and also teach our kids where they from and also thank you for enlightening us abt the truth.The time is now let wake up Medase thank u in Ghana language

  • Athena the goddess of jealousy new name has been tagged on her guys don’t worry that useless girl (Athena) will pay for her karma��

  • For me if Athena was being smart and wanted to protect Medusa she should’ve just stripped Medusa off her tittle as a priestess gave her an abortion pill or if she didn’t want to abort her child just send her far far far away

    (Edit: It’s just my opinion)

  • Athena is too bad guy,cursed is given to madusa by her without any fault she was neither god nor angel on the contrary she was very terrible devil

  • You know what? I sometimes think that gods are supposed to be perfect, but when I went deeper into the their story I realized that not all are perfect, even gods have flaws (jealousy, rage and temper)

  • athena did not curse medusa, she gave her snakes as hair so that she would be able to protect herself from anyone who had the intentions to harm her in any way, as athena couldn’t start a fight against poseidon.

  • Is there also a story where she says: “Hey! How you doing Reginald?! I took some weird pills and I’ve got no idea whats going on right now!”

  • Medusa strike again! 2 days of headaches and though he argue back his pole wasn’t as strong as her toilet hole.
    I did say she’ll be paralyse for life, a vegetable, half living and half dead. That’s her punishment.

  • Lol! I love when you “sum it up” at minute 6. Mythology is wild and crazy and sooo interesting.
    Thanks again! Love listening to these.

  • All myths of Greece has an educative character,The element of hybris and blasphemy was the reasons the goddess of wisdom punished both women,cause they both act with pride and not graditude for the gifts they blessed to carry,note for medusa she was arrogance and claim no man is much for her beauty not even the gods and later on her duty as priestess she claims that she was the reason soo many are visiting the temple and not for worship Athena

  • the last one I do not find it mythologically correct. Arachne lost to Athena and embarrassed tried to hang herself, so she felt sorry for her and turned her into a spider (the best weavers)… fun fact: arachne(αράχνη) is the translation of spider in greek

  • In one of the original stories of Arachne, Athena complimented and admired Arachne’s work and only turned her into a spider as a form of mercy because Arachne tried committing suicide after Athena ridiculed her work because it was literally showing porn of Athena’s dad and uncle. The newer version depicting Athena as a villain was a later ret-con of the story by Ovid.

  • O wow.. So that’s how she got that poisonous snakes on her head. I saw the fiction of her in Percy Jackson & The Olympians Movie. TY����

  • I THANK YOU SO MUCH for your knowledge and TRUTH!!! I feel so much better as a older woman and will be proud to wear my hair white and braided and purchase clothes that will reflect me as a African American citizen. So thank you Dr J.

  • What I don’t understand about Athena is that she had all this fight and strategy to her when it came to fighting along side Zeus or standing up to Poseidon when it came to claiming Athens for herself, but when it came to protecting her priestess of her temple (You know, the one job she has) she didn’t help her. As a matter of fact, she exercised her petty jealousy because the towns people were starting to say Medusa was more beautiful than Athena. She was jealous. Plains and simple. Jealousy is a human trait, to me she wasn’t a goddess but instead a wicked witch with a powerful daddy �� I said what I said.

  • Athena is the daughter every dad wants to have. That’s how she was designed by the Greeks of the time and it still applies today. Skillfull, caring, just, clever, pretty but shy and not very sexually curious. Could stand her ground and put other men in their place but loved her daddy:D

  • More original female I listen to these videos every night for the past two years. I love the authors voice. I just wish for more in-depth content about female gods, but that’s never going to happen

  • Makes sense minerva was more cruel than athena, ancient rome was an empire centered on conquest so their gods should be a bit less friendly

  • goddess of wisdom??? where is the wisdom when one of her most devoted follower was rape in her temple in front of her statue and she punish the poor victim turning the girl into medusa? thank god she wasn’t the goddess of justice

  • So incase anyone thinks that Athena is acting weird in the arachne myith well you have good reason to be it was written down by a dude who had a very anti ruling class philosophy so he wrote it like that

    He also wrote the story of medusa and that’s why she was unfeeling about medusas fate he also basically made this whole story up but I guess at this point it’s basically become part of the mythology

  • Athena: “There’s nowhere you can hide, Spartan. Put as much distance between you and the truth a you want. It changes nothing. Pretend to be everything you are not… teacher… husband… father…”

    (Kratos gave Athena a look before resuming what he was doing.)

    Athena: “But there is one unavoidable truth you will never escape: You cannot change. You will always be…… a monster.”

    Kratos: “…… I know.”

    (Kratos then looks at Athena with a glare.)

    Kratos: (Glare) “But I am your monster no longer.”

    (Kratos walks out with the blades of chaos and set out to save his son.)

    Mimir: Alright brother… let’s see what those blades can do.

  • Again Excellent Video ��������
    In the myth Athena claimed Zuse was a coward who then attacked Typhoon with 100 thunderbolts when Typhoon was defeated he was tossed into the bottomless pit of Tartarus. ⚡��⚡
    Can you please do Kyknos son of Ares God of War who was killed by Hercules and do the real myth about Kratos god of strength and guard of Olympians. ��⚔

    P.S. Please do Ancient Babylonian Mythology and History first of do the fish God Oannes who teached mankind Arts and Sciences after a Great flood. ��

  • Come, weave us a scheme so I can pay them back! Stand beside me, Athena, fire me with daring, fierce as the day we ripped Troy’s glittering crown of towers down. Stand by me furious now as then, my bright-eyed one and I would fight three hundred men, great goddess, with you to brace me, comrade-in-arms in battle!
    homer

  • this is Why i unsubscribed to the SEE U IN HISTORY channel cause they are misinterpreting Athena instead talks about Minerva and the commentors there are PERCY JACKSON PRO’S UGH!

  • Worst part is, the Gods never pay or suffer for their mistakes. Really disappointed in you Themis…better start taking your job seriously.

  • i have never heard or believed in athena…but she came in my dream and introduced herself to me…the place she and fellows lived is beyond human imagination…

  • I had some questions, according to the idolaters believer’s. There gods Where are they now
    1. If they are deities where are they now.
    2. Who killed them or how they died. Why they died in first place.
    3. If they died how world is still running till date.
    4. Why they chose Olympus as their home. If they are gods they can stay any where in jungle or in garden. If they are deities why they need home in first place.
    5. Who on earth eat his wife when she is pregnant.
    6. If zeus is god why he got scared of his unborn male child.
    7. One day every child will become successor of his parents. So why he got scared that means he is not a god.
    8. Why athena choose to come out of his own father brain.
    9. If she is wisdom that got from her father that also means zeus has gone mental all his wisdom gone into his daughter..
    10. If all gods are fighting Among themselves and then with titans how world is still ruunnnnning?

    Until next time ciao ciao

  • Thank you for your respect and very learned view on this matter. I tend to be a heavy critic of mythology videos as I am a Greek polytheist. Many other channels like to show her in crop tops or half naked and don’t know Ovid from Greek mythology.
    You hit the nail on the head. Athena would be proud.

  • Mine and my girlfriend’s favorite goddess in Greek mythology.

    I sincerely hope people realize that Ovid’s biased interpretation of her (Minerva) doesn’t define her as a whole.

  • Also, the story of Medusa doesn’t make sense because, in the theogony, which gives the genealogy of every existing being, it says Medusa has three Gorgon sisters. Also, Ovid was salty because Augustus exiled him, so he took out his anger on the gods

  • I’ve seen version where the punishment for the weaving contest wasn’t because she’d lost but was more a punishment for hubris because her opponent had a big mouth an insulted the gods which started the whole thing and then insulted them even more by weaving what was basically a image of Zeus and Poseidon being idiots and screwing literally anything that moved.
    Having been warned a few times up to now Athena had enough and beat her over the head with a spindle or distaff and turned to to a spider because she through “angering a god what could go wrong?” So far as i see it thats just more a story of know your limits…

  • I think that it was Athena who got really mad at and swore vengeance on Queen Cassiopeia; for having the nerve to claim that her daughter Princess Andromeda was better looking then the goddess, or at least that’s what what I remember from the 80’s movie.

  • Athena is actually quite clumsy��! There was that one time when she accidentally turned one of her priestesses, Iodama, into stone!! It happened during the night, when Iodama entered Athena’s temple, Athena also came, holding the aegis which had Medusa’s head placed on it! Iodama accidentally saw it, and turned to stone. Athena was saddened, so she created an altar for Iodama and each day a woman would go there and would put fire on the hearth of the altar, as well as, repeat three times in a Boiotian accent that Iodama was still living and asking for fire.
    Pretty funny story in my opinion! It shows that everyone can be a bit clumsy at times��!!

  • Why is everyone taking myth and twisted stories as truth?! All this is speculation and allegory at best.. unless you were there or can psychically see what happened or speak with these beings personally you shouldn’t believe ‘stories’ as truth!

  • Actually, the myth about Medusa was written down by a misogynist who detested the fact that a female goddess was associated with war and therefore detested Athena herself. A different version of the myth says that Athena didn’t change Medusa out of anger or jealousy but to help her protect herself from the predatory men in her life.

  • Hello sunshine the Romans light to copy from the Greeks sometimes well some tighter bulshit stories but yeah now I was truly Canon of these stories anymore

  • All this mythology from the north of the equator hey? What are these northerners really after? Entertainment, Power, Food? Head south and be kind and there it all may lie.

  • I recently gave an online test on Google named “which greek godess are you?” And I was declared Athena(although I did in a hope of Aphrodite). That test brought me here.

  • Before all this ever happened, Sharon Agathon was a cylon, who was given the callsign Athena after being inducted into the Colonial Fleet.

  • She has always been my inspiration for a girl’s name, if I’ll ever have one. But I am surely thinking more of the traditional greek version of Athena. She’s strong enough to match Ares, and yet she does so with wisdom and she’s capable of compassion. That sounds like the whole package to me in terms of gods:)

  • I always get devoured whole by Athena in my RPs involving her, she normally claims it’s to keep me safe as we traveled together, but I always got digested completely before arriving at our destination

  • I’ve heard a different version where Zeus asks his wife to become a fly and he swallows her and forgets about her being inside of him and pregnant one day his stomach hurts so bad that he throws up his love and she transforms to a human giving birth to Athena

  • That doesn’t make sense. They say Metis was Zeus’s first wife so he didn’t mary Hera yet but the myth says that Hephaestus and Ares caught Zeus’s head BUUUUT Hephaestus and Ares are son of Hera so…….

  • May I ask you something? Where do you get all those photos from? I have already looked on the internet, but I cannot find them anywhere… I have to give a lecture about Athena at school and I would like to show them. ��

  • Athena is my favorite greek goddess �� she’s so amazing because of her high intellectual level. She do thing for good. And oh! Don’t blame her for cursing medusa��

  • There is one charakter they forgot in this myth and the Charakters name is crysaos. Son of medusa and Poseidon. The golden sword! If u don’t belive me look it up on Wikipedia!
    Other than that the myth is fine��

  • I dont want gods who owns what they want and who in the name of wisdom do anything and just bcoz they are gods take any action. I really hope that gods are much different than portrayed here

  • I understand Athena, which is why she’s always resonated with me. I’m surprised to hear her described negatively at all. Whenever I think of her, I think of wisdom which is a trait I’ve always had. My boss in college pointed that out when I was 18. But, I get how people can assume such things if they don’t really know her. I think people fail to see her good points. IE. She’s a hero & can & does prevent wars, but people want to use negative words. I think anybody who would do that, deserves to be admired, not discounted. Put it this way: if you were Athena, preventing wars & offering assistance, how would you feel if people said those things about you instead of being thankful? “If it weren’t for you, countries might not still be where they are in the condition that they are in. So, thanks Athena.” I know it must be hard being Athena which is exactly why I appreciate her so much.

  • Yo they did madusa dirty cuz like she did not even do anything wrong like that God Athena need to be the one that should be punished like he did her dirty

  • I know I’m late to the party, but what if the stories showing Athena as a dick are right? As in it’s the form of Athena doing these things, but it’s actually another deity disguised as her trying to gain favor by making everyone else look like shit? As in maybe Hera? Because that sounds like something she would do? Just a theory lolz

  • I like Athena, given that the out of character moments are attributes to Roman authors, if prefer to see her as benevolent and caring, rather than a vindictive twat.

  • Athena was always my favorite Goddess my teacher said to choose a Greek god and I chose Athena everybody said that this girl fits me

  • Dionysius Pyrrhus [el] requests the exclusive use of Hellene in his Cheiragogy: “Never desire to call yourselves Romans, but Hellenes, for the Romans from ancient Rome enslaved and destroyed Hellas.”

    Plus: English historians preferred to use Roman terminology (Edward Gibbon used Greek in a particularly belittling manner), while French historians prefer to use the Latin word Greek too. And George Gemistus Plethon pointed out to Constantine Palaeologus that the people he leads are “Hellenes, as their race and language and education testifies”.

    Ducas Vatatzes, wrote in a letter to Pope Gregory IX about the wisdom that “rains upon the Hellenic nation”. He maintained that the transfer of the imperial authority from Rome to Constantinople was national and not geographic, and therefore did not belong to the Latins occupying Constantinople: Constantine’s heritage was passed on to the Hellenes, so he argued, and they alone were its inheritors and successors.

    His son, Theodore II Lascaris, was eager to project the name of the Greeks with true nationalistic zeal. He made it a point that “the Hellenic race looms over all other languages” and that “every kind of philosophy and form of knowledge is a discovery of Hellenes […]. What do you, O Rome, have to display?”

  • Wow who knew gods are griddy and disrespectful forcing people and shihh I don’t believe in these stuff tho there’s only one God and you know who that is

  • Watch Athos(I’m calling him Athos) merged with Athena and Chimera Athena takes over Olympus. Then male god who tries to get fresh with anyone first desiccated and then castrated. Brains and feminism.

  • Olympians in “God of War”: Die from mutilation and disembowelment.
    Olympians in myth: Totally fine with being ripped to pieces. Having your head split open is equivalent to taking some Advil.

  • she turned into a fly after Zeus tricked her into a game of shape shifting. When she became the fly, Zeus swallows her. And she sat in his head making a tunic, helmet and shield for her daughter. Metis remained in Zeus’ head and gave him wisdom.

  • The incident of the attempted rape of Athena by Vulcan ( inspired by Athena’s archenemy Neptune) proves that the difference between Rape and Rapture is the Salesmanship. Just as Métis gave Jupiter a potion to make Saturn vomit up his children, Athena could have given Jupiter the same potion to make Jupiter vomit up unborn brother and mother Métis. Add Vulcan to Athena and her brother, and possibly Hera. Jupiter could be dethroned.

  • What about when Athena literally cursed Medusa and she becomes the fair and kind goddess she cursed Medusa because posieden tricked Medusa I watched a vid on Medusa and Athena did this partly because she was jealous of Medusa’s long hair and beautiful eyes

  • Some people in the comment section did not read about Perseus, Athena gave Perseus the shield/sword (forged in Olympus) to defeat Medusa. Athena, indeed jealous of medusa, usually gods have jealousy, and Athena cannot revenge Poseidon or any other gods for that matter. Hence she took it upon the woman who seduced him with her beauty; no, Athena did not CURSE medusa for the safety of Medusa, and that’s why it is called a curse and not gift. Medusa was never free from men either way.

  • Humm, I am a little bit confused here. I thought the story was that Ast ( Isis ) was a virgin when the husband was killed and cut into pieces. She then gathered the remains together and laid on it, and the spirit of the husband impregnated her. I would love to know the correct version if anyone has the answer please. Thanks

  • I really respect barryhacks on!G he’s has done so many wonderful transaction without dealing or disappointment just got me $95,000 through cash app flips thanks,

  • Anyone gonna talk about the seal meme in the background to the right at 5.20 lol..also the percy jackson scene is still embarrassing

  • I love Greek mythology athena is my favorite goddess she’s stand out from the rest of the gods she’s the coolest goddess ever ����

  • Scientists took 166 bone samples from 151 mummies, dating from approximately 1400 B.C. to A.D. 400, extracting DNA from 90 individuals and mapping the full genome in three cases.
    Publishing its findings in Nature Communications, the study concluded that preserved remains found in Abusir-el Meleq, Middle Egypt, were closest genetic relatives of Neolithic and Bronze Age populations from the Near East, Anatolia and Eastern Mediterranean Europeans. 
    Previous DNA analysis of mummies has been treated with a necessary dose of skepticism, explains professor Johannes Krause of the Max Planck Institute.”When you touch a bone, you probably leave more DNA on the bone than is inside (it),” he argued. “Contamination is a big issue…. Only in the last five or six years has it become possible to actually study DNA from ancient humans, because we can now show whether DNA is ancient or not by (its) chemical properties.”
    “So if we don’t find sub-Saharan African ancestry in those people, that is pretty representative, at least for Middle Egypt.”
    Krause hypothesizes that ancient Northern Egypt would be much the same, if not more, linked to the Near East. Ancient Southern Egypt might be a different matter, however, where populations lived closer to Nubia, home of the “Black Pharaohs” in what is now Sudan. Caucasians living in ancient Egypt/Kemet is a scientific fact. Backed bt DNA evidence.

  • Medusa life was very sad, basically she was raped and cursed for being beautiful. So Poseidon is a rapist god? And Athena is a hater goddess?

  • TGABK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THIS GREAT MAN FORWARD. I LEARNED SO MUCH AND WAS ABLE TO FILL IN THE BLANKS FOR MY KNOWLEDGE. YOU ARE WONDERFUL SPIRITUAL LEADERS AND WILL FOLLOW YOU FOREVER. LOVE YOU ALL

  • In some of the older versions Medusa is a gorgon right from the beginning and daughter of the ancient chthonic deities Phorkys and Keto and might also have been a chthonic or fertility goddess, until the chthonic deities (deities with ties to the earth and/or the underworld/afterlife) lost worship and were replaced by the “Big 12”. In fact, there are many myths, in which older deities are turned into monsters, who get slain by heros or gods or are merged with the newer gods. ^^

  • We are reclaiming our power, culture and lost glory. There’s an Awakening wave sweeping through Continental and diaspora Africans. The revolution is now, it will not be televised.

  • HOW CAN WE EDUCATE OUR YOUNG GENERATION?THIS NEEDS TO BE TAUGHT AT HOME IN SUMMER HOLIDAYS..PLAYING FOOTBALL AND BASKET BALL FOR THE WHITE MEN IS NOT ENOUGH

  • great video! but around the 9 min mark he said the Nile goes up north but i thought it flowed up south and down north, just wondering.

  • The Dr. remains one of the great minds of our time. With a beautiful breakdown of the historical monuments and the thinking of it’s builders and those who portray ideas that stem from them.

  • She didn’t gave her protection perhaps she waited after so that she had reasons to curse her not because she disgraced athena but out of athenas jealousy towards her

  • WAW WAW WAW!!!!! THIS IS FREAKING PERFECT!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS SOOOOO AMAZING!!!! <3333333 I LOVE THE WHOLE VID...THIS IS JUST.. WAW!:D ♥

  • I heard a different version of the Athens story. I can’t remember which god it was ( I don’t think it was Poseidon) but he gave a gift of a great horse, athena then gave her gift of an olive branch. The gods agreed that athenas gift was superior in its many uses, so the naming of the new city was granted to her. So, slightly different but not really…

  • Do I need to be the one to point out the background music or did everyone already know where it’s from and just wanted to talk about Athena (which as a worshiper if hers, I don’t mind talking about her but the background music got most of my attention).

  • BTW Medusa wasn’t a greek god, she was actually an African God and her hair wasn’t actually snakes,she had dreads and because her dreads were long they said that it looked like snakes and they made her out to evil because she was black and she had “snakes” for hair.

  • I’m super mad just watch this. I felt sorry for medusa, she admire Athena, she dedicate herself to Athena. But what she does is cursed her.

  • Does Medusa need to feed her hair snakes or do they get nutrition because they’re part of her? Alway wondered this. Asked a priest, who said I was a heretic. I told him I didn’t believe in his religion and he had wasted his life upon a mere fairytale.

  • I’m seeing all of these comments being cross twoards Athena. Stop keep in mind she was still the goddess of war. She may be wise but when all is said and done she’s still a war goddess. stop giving my mother hateful words, let there be peace. If you disagree fight me Also in the picture of her turning Mudusa’s hair into snakes she looks sad. There had to be justice and she couldn’t punish poisiden.

  • For those watching this video, this is not the Greek version of Medusa’s story. This is the Roman version and was basically used as anti-elite propaganda where the gods are stand-ins for rich people. In the Greek version, Medusa was arrogant and betrayed her vow by sleeping with Poseidon for power. He does other videos that explain the many versions of Medusa’s story.

  • Thank you for defending Athena against those stories of Ovid. The thing is that the transformation of Medusa is exclusively found in Ovid’s version and onward. In the original Greek version Medusa was born a monster!

  • I hate Athena she cursed the innocent woman the person who is loyal to her And now after what she have done Medusa became a devil a ruthless one because of her jealousy to Medusa she did a very ruthless cursed then Medusa became a snake because of her!!!!
    It is because Medusa is not pure anymore she get mad, at first I idolized her but now I am one of her hater!!!!��������
