Athena is my favorite goddess she is a strong independent woman and she’s the most beautiful woman of the Greek gods 😁

It Sounds like a gift Athena gave them it doesn’t sound like a curse with medusa‘s gift she can protect herself from anyone turning them into stone and for Arachne she can curate webs from her belly and make beautiful webs

I prefer to think about the story of medusa in the way that she was transformed to be protected by ever getting r*ped/assaulted again. So athena wasn’t mad but she had to punish her in the eyes if the other gods and saw this as a solution. (Maybe bc i like her so much)

And in the original Medusa myth Athena had no involvement in making her a monster, and in the Ovid version there's no "oh no she didn't know it was rape!" She just needed to punish someone and couldn't punish a god.

In homes that took in women who had been raped, the head of Medusa would be above the door. If Neptune (I can't spell the Greek name) looked anything like Jason Momoa, it would be so totally worth it.

Greek person here! I really appreciate the fact that you make these videos for people to feel interested in Greece and it's history (myths being a huge part of it). I have to say, your pronunciation of the words is really funny. They're wrong but it's super adorable! Keep up the great work!!!! I could binge watch your videos for hours even if I know the stories better than I know my own name! Also fun fact: Arachne means spider

You should look into the Chauvinistic transition of Athena to Minerva by the Romans. The Romans effectively did the first gender swap. Where the wise warrior aspects of the Greek goddess Athena became attributed to the Roman god Mars; and the barbaric petty psycho qualities of Ares became attributed to the Roman goddess Minerva. Athena is still the most badass in my book

The version of the weaving story I heard was that Arachni was so distraught that she had spoken uncarefully in front of her favorite goddess Athena that Arachni hung herself. Athena then, out of compassion, brought her back to life in the form of a spider so that Arachni could always weave as she loved to do, and always hang as she chose to do.

3:40 as a greek person myself I can say that the ch in promachos is more like ch in Chris than in nachos. Also, the most common myth about why Athena transformed Medusa into a monster was because she disrespected her, sayind she was more beautiful than every Goddess there was. I hope my explanations helped a bit😊

In one of the versions, hepheastus tried to aproached her, athena fought him off but some of his blacksmith soot fell on her thigh, which she removed with her hand that second. Then it fell on the ground, ericthonius was born, and athena became his foster mom. I like this version cuz athena remained a virgin, and she was kind to the boy too.
