Olympus，Athena heard the praises of the crowd and，as the goddess of arts and crafts(技艺女神)，wanted to know more about this girl.Athena disguised(假扮)herself as an old beggar and appeared before the young girl. With the praise of the onlookers ， Arachne became very proud.“Athena would have to work hard to achieve my skill， ”she said， “My tapestries are the best.” “Don’t you know how unwise it is to laugh at the gods? You should beg Athena to forgive you at once，”Athena warned the girl. Arachne paid no attention to the warning and continued，“I don’t need to apologize for my skill.Why，if Athena and I were to have a competition， I am certain I would win.”Hearing this, Athena could stand it no longer and showed her true appearance.She declared，“Let’s start the competition now ！ ”Arachne nodded and they both began weaving.Rapidly pictures appeared on their looms(织布机)．Athena’s tapestry showed a person being punished for being arrogant( 自大 的)towards the gods while Arachne’s tapestry pictured the gods being silly. In the end，Athena became very angry and said，“Since you are so proud of your weaving，then that is what you shall do forever.”As soon as she gave the command，Arachne’s body and legs turned smaller and smaller until she became a small spider.
