Athens is the capital and largest city of Greece.


Ancient Greece

The city of Athens was apparently built in honor of Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, but actually it was named in honor of the Eternal Thena who was often confused for the Olympian goddess.[1][citation needed][verification needed]

Circa 5,000 BC (seventy centuries ago), Athens and Atlantis were at war. Lord Kam'u of Atlantis attempted to make peace by sending emissaries to appeal for trade between the two countries, in order to feed their starving masses. The Athenians instead butchered the emissaries' bodies and invaded his realm, causing Kam'u to strike back.[2]

She later allowed it to be conquered by the Spartans in 404 B.C.[1][citation needed][verification needed]

Thor travelled to Athens during the conflict between the Olympians and Asgardians. He came to tell them they were the new gods of this land. The people just ignored him.[3]
