Mythology

The Greek god Zeus promised the city of Attica to whichever god or goddess provided its people with a gift of everlasting value.

The goddess Athena swayed Zeus by presenting him with the olive, which could be used for food and as an essence with many uses. Legend has it that Athena planted the first olive tree on the slopes of a barren, stony mountain - today's Acropolis.
