A Greek maiden whose weaving ability was the marvel of the ancient world. When Athena heard about it she challenged Arachne to a contest. When the girl's tapestry was the equal to the goddess', she became angry and tore Arachne's weaving to shreds. The girl became terrified of what Athena might do and hanged herself. Athena became regretful of her actions and turned Arachne into a spider, so that she might weave all that she wished.
Arachne was a weaving wonder.l
