look up any word, like bae:
 
1.
Something that is amazing. Referring to the Greek goddess Athena and her temple in Greece.

Supposedly started in the mid 2000's by teens in the UK but only recently has caught on by American media and other places around the world. It refers to the Greek goddess, Athena, and her temple in Greece. It was given the meaning of awesomeness and amazement because she is one of the most loved of the goddesses for her bravery and wisdom. It is mostly used in teen slang but has been quickly and quietly moving up to the main social media. Mostly used in the Indie scene.
