The Sword of Athena, is a magical armament that Princess Diana wields in battle when fighting as Wonder Woman.



Much like Wonder Woman's shield, the sword has Ancient Greek writing engraved on both sides of its blade and a symbol that represents the Amazons of Themyscira.


  • The writing on the blade is a quote from Joseph Campbell's Goddesses: Mysteries of the Feminine Divine, which reads: "Life is killing life all the time and so the goddess kills herself in the sacrifice of her own animal."
