Minerva.jpg

Minerva was the Roman goddess of poetry, medicine, wisdom, war, strategic warfare, commerce, weaving, the arts and crafts. She was one of the many children of Jupiter (arguably his favourite daughter) and formed with her father and Juno the Capitoline Triad.

She was also the patron goddess of the city of Athens, and had a bitter rivalry with the gods Neptune and Mars. She often equated with the Greek goddess Athena.
