Aegis is the shield wielded by Athena in Greek mythology. It is often interpreted as a shield made of animal hide, often featuring the head of Medusa or another Gorgon. In some depictions the Aegis actually belongs to Zeus, in which it may be his breastplate rather than a shield, and Zeus would lend it to various gods in deeds they need his aid in. However in popular culture the Aegis is more commonly associated with Athena.The
