Pallas Athena and the olive tree

Pseudo-Apollodorus (second century BC) in the work ‘Mythological Library’ (3.14.1) informs that Pallas Athena took possession of the city of Athens because Zeus considered that the planting of an olive tree in the Acropolis was more important than the fountain created by Poseidon.

Pseudo-Apolodoro (séc. II aC) informa na obra Biblioteca Mitológica (3.14.1) que Pallas Athena tomou posse da cidade de Atenas porque Zeus considerou que a plantação duma oliveira na acrópole era mais importante que a fonte criada por Posídon.
