Over 2,000 years ago the Athenian Owl Tetradrachm was the most influential coin in the world, the owl symbolizing strength, wisdom, and insight. In modern times “AOE” has become to stand for: Alethia Orno Eternia translating to Truth, Honor and Forever.
In ancient Greek mythology, the goddess Athena kept an owl on her shoulder that revealed truths to her and represented wisdom and knowledge. In some versions of the mythology, the owl was said to illuminate Athena’s “blind side,” allowing her to see the entire truth. Owls were widely associated with Athena’s blessing, and Green soldiers viewed the sight of owls before a battle as a symbol that the goddess was on their side.
