Athenia Resources

I recommend that you look at the pages of the website in the order they are presented in the table below.

First take a look at the History page to learn about Athenia before her loss, and on return go to the Introduction page. From there, each page carries a link to the next in sequence at the bottom of the page.

Click on the title of the page you want to view in the subject column.
