Odeon of Herod Atticus

An Athenian Bridal Inspiration Editorial

Legend has it that when Zeus offered a contest between Athena and Poseidon for the possession of Athens, Poseidon raised up his three-pronged trident, smashed it upon the hard rock of the Acropolis and out a salt spring sprang. Athena, on the other hand, produced an olive tree, its rich fruits bountifully dangling from the branches. The Athenians chose Athena’s gift and the olive tree has remained an essential part of Greece, with its leaves, used to crown the heads of victorious athletes, generals, and kings.
