Minerva was the Roman virgin goddess of warriors, poetry, medicine, wisdom, commerce, weaving, crafts, and the inventor of music. She is often depicted with an owl, her sacred creature and, through this connection, a symbol of wisdom.
She is thought to share a common root with Athena, comming to Italy (it is thought) via Etruria. For this reason depictions of both Athena and Minerva often show many similarities.
