Athena, also spelled Athene, was the Greek goddess of wisdom, war, the arts, industry, justice and skill. She was the favorite child of Zeus. She had sprung fully grown out of her father’s head. Her mother was Metis, goddess of wisdom and Zeus’ first wife. In fear that Metis would bear a son mightier than himself. Zeus swallowed her and she began to make a robe and helmet for her daughter. The hammering of the helmet caused Zeus great pain in the form of headaches and he cried out in agony. Skilled Hephaestus ran to his father and split his skull open and from it emerged Athena, fully grown and wearing her mother’s robe and helmet. x
Sprectrespecs were large, colourful spectacles that were given away free in an issue of The Quibbler in 1996. They were described as making their wearer look like a “demented, multicoloured owl.” They make wrackspurts, (invisible creatures that floats through one’s ears causing their brain to go fuzzy), visible to the wizarding eye, according to Luna Lovegood.
