Your history lesson for the day:* 

 In one version of founding myth, Athena competed with Poseidon to be the patron deity of Athens, which was yet unnamed.  They agreed that each would give the Athenians one gift and that the Athenians would choose the gift they preferred.  Poseidon struck the ground with his trident and a salt water spring sprang up.  This gave them a means of trade, and water - Athens at its height was a significant sea power - but the water was salty and not good for drinking.

Athena, however, offered them the first domesticated olive tree.  The Athenians (or their king Cecropsi) accepted the olive tree and with it the patronage of Athena, for the olive tree brought wood, oil and food.
