In Greek mythology, a LittleOwl (Athenenoctua) traditionally represents or accompanies Athena, thevirgin goddess of wisdom, or Minerva, her syncretic incarnation in Romanmythology. Because of such association, the bird —often referred to as the”owl of Athena” or the”owl of Minerva“— hasbeen used as a symbol of knowledge, wisdom, perspicacity and eruditionthroughout the Western world.
