Reproduction of the West Pediment of the Parthenon (438 to 432 BC). Athens. The original sculptures are in the British Museum, London.

It corresponds to the sculptural ensemble of the pediment above the secondary entrance to the Parthenon, composed of sculptures of the Olympian gods by the Athenian sculptor Phidias. It depicts the dispute between the gods Pallas Athena and Poseidon for the patronage of Athens. In the centre are the gods of the myth: Athena on the left and Poseidon on the right, with an olive tree between them.

According to the myth, Athena offered the olive tree to the inhabitants of the city in exchange for being chosen as their patron goddess. The gift that was offered by Poseidon was the horse, and according to other versions, a spring of salt water that the god made gush forth by striking the ground with his trident. The citizens finally chose Athena, from whom the city took its name, Athens.
