    Athena was the only god really to help Odysseus,I recall Athena helping Odysseus in was when he was trapped on Calypso’s island. She urges her father (Zeus) to help Odysseus out, and Zeus sends Hermes to Calypso, on his behalf, to tell Calypso to release Odysseus so he can return home.In nausicaa she help Odysseus find the way to the palace of Antonius and told him how to talked to them what to say and do to get their hospitality. she wrapped Odysseus in mist so no one could see him until he got to Antonius wife. she disguised ody as a old man at his house in ithaca so he would not get noticed and could spy on the suitors and plot his revenge.she morphed in a mentor when ody was fighting the suitors to scare them. she made the suites has bad aim when throwing the spears.there a few more i cant remember them.

    Mortals recognized Athena’s active role as an influence and intercessor with others. This is what made Athena so “popular” with the Greek people. In the Odyssey by Homer, Athena has an incredible relationship with Odysseus. After reading the epic poem, one can witness the very complete, very extensive bond she develops with not only Odysseus but with the other characters as well. At the opening of the book, Athena begs her father Zeus to allow her to aid Odysseus, so he can go home to his family. She says,”My own heart is broken for Odysseus”. Athena goes as far as enhancing his appearance so that Princess Nausikaa will be sure to help him reach home. Once Odysseus reaches the city that Nausikaa leads him to, Athena “pours a sea fog” around him to protect him, and she takes on the form of a small girl in order to show him the way to the palace. Once Athena leads Odysseus home to Ithaca, she disguises herself as a Shepperd boy and makes conversation with her beloved Odysseus. However, she eventually transforms herself into her natural state and says:Two of a kind, we are, contrivers, both. Of all the men alive you are the best in plots and story telling. My own fame is for wisdom among the gods – deceptions too. Would even you have guessed that I am Pallas Athena, daughter of Zeus, I that am always with you in times od trial, a shield to you in battle”. Athena demonstrates throughout the Odyssey and in her relationship with Odysseus that she is a goddess of action just as Odysseus is a man of action. She states, “I am here again to counsel with you”. It is Athena who plots and plans the fall of the suitors in Odysseus’ house. To follow her plan, Athena disguises Odysseus into a beggar and leads him to the swineherd, a faithful servant. There they unite with Telemachus, Odysseus’ son, to carry out the plot of doom. Once they go to the palace, the goddess of war and her followers destroy and cast revenge upon the suitors of Penelope. Athena flaunts her warlike qualities creating battle in which her “side” was undoubtedly the victor. Thought the mist of confusion and blood, Athena makes sure to keep Odysseus and Telemachus safe. The goddess even “held the night” so that Odysseus and Penelope could have longer to get reacquainted. Homer comments that “she held Dawn’s horses”.Athena demonstrates her role as an active leader in her protection of Telemachus. In the beginning of the epic poem, the Odyssey, she “flies” to him in the shape of Mentes, a Taphian captain, to talk to him and urge him to look for his father, Odysseus. While with him, she sits, drinks, dines, and carries on conversation. Later, she also takes on Mentor’s figure to talk to him. At the end of the Odyssey, the war goddess enhances Laertes’ looks for his reunion with his son Odysseus. In the final scene, she takes up the form of Mentor once more to bring peace to the bickering people.
