Athena and Herakles

I was amazed to hear that someone opened the door to FDPG last night and said, almost immediately "You must be Athena!"

Amazed and impressed. How's that for neighbours? I wasn't there or I would have queried further ("Are you a retired Classics prof?" "A member of Athena's Secret Club?").

Could it have been this picture on the front of her helmet? Or the Medusa head on her shield? Whatever it was, someone knew just who she was.

The next remark was "I bet you'll be the only Athena I see tonight."

I bet she was right.
