These small Greek spoons are classic in design. In Greek mythology, a little owl traditionally represents Athena, the virgin goddess of wisdom. Because of the association, the bird — often referred to as the "owl of Athena" has been used as a symbol of knowledge and wisdom.
The Greek tetradrachm Coin also depicts the owl of Athena (circa 480–420 BC) with the inscription "ΑΘΕ" which is an abbreviation of ΑΘΗΝΑΙΩΝ ..........translated as "of the Athenians".
