Curiously enough, the bird of prey known as the kite is in Spanish el milano. The kite was in legend dedicated to Apollo, and symbolised his gifts of clairvoyance and prophecy. Apollo was considered the patron of the polis, the god of the city-state. As such he was also highly venerated in the city of Athens, as was Athena, the goddess of the arts and of Wisdom, whose faithful companion was the bird of knowledge, our bloeves and cultivated owl.
