Pallas: Archetype of Competence.

Pallas, named for Athena, is one of the most persistent and long-enduring of mythological figures, but despite the fact of 2 Pallas, the asteroid and her namesake being more than two centuries past discovery, there is remarkably little consensus about interpretive themes in the nativity.
