The Athenian Water (also known as Revive in the SNES/PS version) is a consumable item in Chrono Trigger. It revives a knocked-out party member and restores their Hit Points by 50. Athenian Water or Athena’s Water in the Japanese version appears as a vial of liquid, capped with an image of a winged Goddess(likely Athena herself), referencing the Tritogeneia myth. [1]

Etymology[]

A reference to one of the origin myths the Greek Goddess Athena. In the Iliad (4.514), the Odyssey (3.378), the Homeric Hymns, and in Hesiod's Theogony, Athena is also given the curious epithet Tritogeneia (Τριτογένεια), whose significance remains unclear.[70] It could mean various things, including "Triton-born", perhaps indicating that the homonymous sea-deity was her parent according to some early myths.[70] One myth relates the foster father relationship of this Triton towards the half-orphan Athena, whom he raised alongside his own daughter Pallas.[54] Kerényi suggests that "Tritogeneia did not mean that she came into the world on any particular river or lake, but that she was born of the water itself; for the name Triton seems to be associated with water generally."[71][72] In Ovid's Metamorphoses, Athena is occasionally referred to as "Tritonia".[2]
