Interesting stuff, as usual. But when you wrote this, I had to respond:

"Athena was an odd goddess. She was a virgin, which immediately set her apart from the gods and goddesses,"

Of the Olympian goddesses, three -- Athena, Artemis, and Hestia -- were virgins, as well as many of the minor female deities of the Greek Pantheon.
