Amazons: Its Greek To Me

The Cult of Athena's standard:

The greek on the standard is from the ~7th centrury BCE 'Homeric' Hymns. . . it reads:

"Of Pallas Athena, Guardian of the City, I begin to sing. Dread is she, and with Ares she loves deeds of battle, the taking of cities and the clamour and the conflict."
