Silver tetradrachm coins of ancient Greece depicted the owl of Athena with an inscription "ΑΘΕ", an abbreviation of ΑΘΗΝΑΙΟΝ, which may be translated as "of the Athenians". Also in the coin designs were an olive branch, another symbol of Athena. The laurel crown is another Greek symbol. In ancient Greece laurel wreath were awarded to victors, both in athletic competitions and in poetic meets. It is a modern symbol of Hellenic neopaganism and Hellenic reconstructionism.

The Kraken. The legendary sea creature of Greek mythology – immortalised by Harryhausen in stop-motion in the 1980s. It is also the name given to the Giant Squid, the most elusive of all ocean species. Believed to grow up 60 feet in length, it has been the subject of many tales of misadventure on the high seas. Never has one been captured alive or even captured alive on film. Jacques Cousteau claimed to have seen one, but he was probably full of shit.
