Saint Athena was one of the forty ascetics and students of Deacon Ammoun
The forty women virgin martyrs lived in Thrace around 305 AD and they were disciples of Deacon Ammoun. When they refused to sacrifice to his idols, Roman Emperor Licinius, sought their destruction. He tortured them many times over, and then ordered them all to be put to death.
The Orthodox Christian Church commemorates her on September 1 of each year.
