The Greeks had a definite belief that there was a journey to the afterlife or another world. They believed that death was not a complete end to life or human existence. The Greeksaccepted the existence of the soul after death, but saw thisafterlife as meaningless.
The owl was a symbol for Athena, goddess of wisdom and strategy, before the Greeks gave their pantheon human forms. According to myth, an owl sat on Athena's blind side, so that she could see the whole truth. In Ancient Greece, the owlwas a symbol of a higher wisdom, and it was also a guardian of the Acropolis.
