Eternal Olive by Kevrekidis Star this if you like it!

Olea Europaea or Olive tree (from Greek word elaion). It was purely a matter of local pride that the Athenians claimed that the olive first grew in Athens. In an archaic Athenian foundation myth, Goddess Athena won the patronship of Athens from Poseidon with the gift of the olive. The olive was sacred to Athena and appeared on the Athenian coinage.
