Pallas Athene in aspect to the planets
Pallas Athene’s brilliance was so great that … the whole earth quaked before her. For a time the sun ceased to shine, and the only light in the world radiated from the goddess Athena, splendid as a star.
— The Goddess: Myths and Stories by Lindel Barker-Revell (pg.42)
