The name 'Athens' comes from the Greek goddess, Athena. Athens acquired this name through a legendary contest between Poseidon and Athena. Both Athena and Poseidon wanted to be patrons of the city and to give the city named after them. They competed with one another for the honour by each giving the city a gift. Poseidon made a spring appear by striking the ground with his trident, but Athena created an olive tree, the symbol of peace and prosperity. The Athenians, ruler Cecrops, decided in favor of the olive tree and named the city after Athena. Athens is truly an amazing place. From the Acropolis to the Temple of Zeus to the Olympic stadium and its colorful street markets, the city will be certain to captivate you and your child and draw you both into its spell. Photographer John D. Weigand and award winning writer ,Penelope Dyan have again combined their skills to introduce you to the city that is Athens.
