  13. 13. Thefoundation of Athens<br />Athenea became the patron goddess of the city of Athens after competing with Poseidon. They agreed that each would give the Athenians one gift and the Athenians would choose whichever gift they preferred. Poseidon struck the ground with his trident and a fountain sprang up; the water was salty and not very useful,whereas Athena offered them an olive tree.<br />The Athenians accepted the olive tree and along with it Athena as their patron, for the olive tree brought wood, oil and food. After the fight, infuriated at his loss, Poseidon sent a monstrous flood to the Attic Plain, to punish the Athenians for not choosing him.<br />

He had them build huge walls around the city and promised to reward them well, a promise he then refused to fulfill. In revenge, before the Troyan war, Poseidon sent a sea monster to attack Troy (it was later killed by Perseus).<br />Apolo<br />
