In Greek mythology, a little owl traditionally accompanies Athena, the virgin goddess of wisdom, or Minerva, her syncretic incarnation in Roman mythology.
Because of such association, the bird, often referred to as the owl of Minerva, has been used as a symbol of knowledge, wisdom, perspicacity and erudition throughout the Western World
