Let's skate !

Every day in 'Pedio tou Areos ' (see the previus post : the status of godness Athina) the appearance of teenagers and their skate-board itsn't a quaint sight!However the skateboarders complain about the lack of

The statue of goddess Athina .

Have you ever imagined why the capital of Greece is named Athens?
Goddess Athina shows you the reason ,as she was the proctetress of the ancient city .You can find her statue at the park called 'Pedio tou Aeros 'near the centre.Athina is the war of wisdom and war .That's why she is holding a shield .How the ancient Greeks combined the wisdom and the war ?
