When Athena and Poseidon competed to become the patron god of Athens, each bestowed a gift to the inhabitants of the city. Athena gave the olive tree, a symbol of wealth and prosperity, and Poseidon gave a fountain of seawater, bitter with salt and undrinkable. Athena’s gift was deemed more useful and she was declared the victor. Upon the Acropolis her olive tree still flourishes and the saltwater spring of Poseidon still flows, though now only a trickle of water emerges. A small shrine has been built upon the spring, and the priests of Poseidon have now discovered his hidden gift: those who bathe in the waters of his spring are protected from enchantments, evil spirits, and the magic of foreign gods. A small band of Athenian warriors still honor Poseidon and bathe in his spring, and these warriors are known as Poseidon’s Faithful.
