Athena didnt hate Poseidon, she hated Aphrodite. Athena was annoyed that Poseidon well….. you get the idea. Aphrodite was jealous of her wisdom and Athena…… was jealous of her beauty. The real answer is because Poseiden raped Medusa in Athena’s temple.
Ares is the Olympian God of war and the founder of Sparta. He and his sister Athena have been enemies for centuries and he has done everything to try and destroy her precious city of Athens.
Athena won the contest and became the patron goddess of Athens. From that time forward, Poseidon and Athena were rivals. This plays out in the story of the Odyssey where Poseidon tries to thwart Odysseus while Athena tries to help him on his journey.
(3) WRATH PATRON GODDESS ALKINOE (Alcinoe) A princess of Korinthos (southern Greece) who was cursed by Athena into betraying her own husband as punishment for refusing to pay a spinner named Nikandra the wages which were her due.
AJAXAJAX [ay’jaks] or AIAS, son of OILEUS [o-il’e-us], was prince of Locris and a leading warrior whose chief role in the saga occurred in the sack of Troy, when he violated Cassandra, who had taken refuge at the altar of Athena. He died during the return home, having offended both Athena and Poseidon.
After the taking of Troy, he rushed into the temple of Athena, where Cassandra had taken refuge, and was embracing the statue of the goddess in supplication. Ajax violently dragged her away to the other captives.

Athena has lived with her best friend Pallas’ family since she was a baby, never knowing her true parentage.
Poseidon’s enemies were his father,Cronus,his brother Zeus because Zeus was the king of all gods and not Poseidon,and Athena because Zeus promised Poseidon the city of Athens. But when Athena was born he told Athena she could be the patron of Athens. So they had a contest.
The first reason for why Athena punished Medusa instead of Poseidon is: she could not punish Poseidon. After all, Poseidon was the chief god of the sea. Only Zeus could have a chance to punish Poseidon for what he did. That is not to mention Poseidon was the uncle of Athena.
In Greek mythology, the goddess Athena is immune to romantic love, so there is no particular lover for her. The goddess of love, Aphrodite, has power…

He was not able to catch her – but he ejaculated and the seed fell on her leg. She wiped it away with a piece of wool and the seed fell on Gaia, the Earth, making her pregnant. Athena receives the baby Erichthonius from the hands of Gaia.
