— Goddess of Wisdom and War Strategy — ... She is almost always shown with an owl which stands for wisdom and watchfulness. Athena's symbols and their meaning. The aegis is Athena's shield which represents her protective power. The helmet symbolizes that wisdom and strategy is the key to victory in war.

Athena often helped heroes, like Jason and Perseus. She wore an aegis, a goatskin shield which had a fringe of snakes. When Perseus killed the gorgon Medusa, whose face turned men to stone, he gave the gorgon head to Athena, and the goddess placed it on her aegis.
