In ancient Greek mythology, the goddess Athena kept an owl on her shoulder that revealed truths to her and represented wisdom and knowledge.
In some versions of the mythology, the owl was said to illuminate Athena's "blind side," allowing her to see the entire truth.
Owls were widely associated with Athena's blessing, and Greek soldiers viewed the sight of owls before a battle as a symbol that the goddess was on their side.
While the owl eventually came to represent Athena's wisdom, knowledge and "inner light," there are several theories regarding the development of the association between the goddess and the bird.
According to several historical records, a small species of owl was common in Athens at the time, and historians have proposed that the birds' presence gave rise to the idea that they symbolized the city's goddess.
The symbol of Athena's owl was eventually used on currency within the city: Athenian tetradrachms commonly had a symbol of the owl on their reverse side.
As for ancient Roman folklore, owls were considered harbingers of death if they hooted while perched on a roof, and placing one of its feathers near someone sleeping could prompt him or her to speak and reveal their secrets.
The 19th-century German idealist philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel famously noted that "the owl of Minerva spreads its wings only with the falling of the dusk"—meaning that philosophy comes to understand a historical condition just as it passes away.
Philosophy, as the thought of the world, does not appear until reality has completed its formative process, and made itself ready.
History thus corroborates the teaching of the conception that only in the maturity of reality does the ideal appear as counterpart to the real, apprehends the real world in its substance, and shapes it into an intellectual kingdom.
When philosophy paints its grey in grey, one form of life has become old, and by means of grey it cannot be rejuvenated, but only known.
The owl of Minerva takes its flight only when the shades of night are gathering. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For the scientific journal, see The Owl of Minerva journal.

The Roman goddess of wisdom Minerva has the owl as her sacred creature, as does her ancient Greek counterpart Athena.
Athena was often depicted with an owl, which was considered a symbol of wisdom in both cultures. To the Romans an owl feather placed near sleeping people would prompt them to speak in their sleep and reveal their secrets.
However, in Rome the owl was considered a harbinger of death if it perched on a roof or on a public building and hooted.
The deaths of several Roman emperors, including the assassination of Julius Caesar, were signaled by an owl landing on the roof and hooting.
