In Greek mythology, Athena is associated with offering an olive branch in a contest with Poseidon who offered the horse, useful in warfare. The Gods challenged them to a contest in which the winner would be awarded the city of Athens for the most useful offering to the mortals. Athena won this challenge. Here the goddess grasps with one hand as if to hold an olive branch and the other holds a dove.
