Warrior Cult of Athena

While still not historically justified, I liked the idea of a unit of female warriors dedicated to Athena more than I like the standard idea of 'Amazons'.

The owl motif on the warriors' shield designs was inspired by (0v0), a Seattle street artist. The leader's shield design is based on an ancient Athenian coin.

The script on the standard is taken from the 7th Century BC "Homeric Hymns".
It reads:
""Of Pallas Athena, Guardian of the City, I begin to sing. Dread is she, and with Ares she loves deeds of battle, the taking of cities and the clamour and the conflict."
