γλαυκῶπις: gleaming-eyed, cf. “δεινὼ κτλ”. v. 200. The Homeric Athena is the fierce-eyed, courageous goddess of war; cf. “ταῦτα” (sc. “πολεμήια ἔργα”) “δ̓ Ἄρηι θοῷ καὶ Ἀθήνῃ πάντα μελήσει Ε” 430. Her name is coupled with that of Ares also 13.127 ff. Her epith. “Παλλάς” belongs to her as wielding the lance (cf. “πάλλειν Π” 142). She became “Ἀθηνᾶ Νίκη” and “Ἀθηνᾶ Προμαχος” at Athens.
