owl brooch

As a symbol of wisdom, vigilance and intelligence, the owl in Greek mythology was associated with the goddess Athena. She was the patron deity of the city of Athens, the protectress of women, and the goddess of intelligence, wisdom and strategic thought.

Owls appear on Athenian coins from the 6th century BC onwards, with the first three letters of Athena's name (in Greek: alpha, theta, epsilon) and an olive branch, Athena's gift to her city.
