The Sword of Athena, is a magical armament that Princess Diana wields in battle when fighting as Wonder Woman.
History[edit | edit source]
Construction[edit | edit source]
At some point the sword was presumably created and wielded by the Olympian Goddess of Wisdom, Crafts, and Strategy, Athena.
Wonder Woman would eventually proceed to wield the sword against Doomsday, managing to slice off the monster's right arm with it.
Specifications[edit | edit source]
Much like Wonder Woman's shield, the sword has Ancient Greek writing engraved on both sides of its blade and a symbol that represents the Amazons of Themyscira.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The writing on the blade is a quote from Joseph Campbell's Goddesses: Mysteries of the Feminine Divine, which reads: "Life is killing life all the time and so the goddess kills herself in the sacrifice of her own animal."
