CitationNagy, Gregory. 2020, May 8. Questions While Viewing Greek Myths and Rituals Through the Lens of Pausanias, IV: Is Athena, Viewed Theologically, a Person? Classical Inquiries.
AbstractIn the previous posting, Classical Inquiries 2020.05.01, I asked this question: is “Athena” the name of a person or of a place? And my answer was: “Athena” is the name of a place that we know as Athens. I backed up that answer by arguing against the assumption that the city of Athens was named after a goddess who was already named “Athena”.
