"Minoan Athena"[edit]

The source for the claim about the Minoan origins of Athena contains dubious linguistics, as Minoan is a linguistic isolate and most definitely NOT an Indo-European language. Any similarities to Hittite are a coincidence at best, and confirmation bias at worst. Greek is known to have a large Pre-Indo-European substrate, chief among these is suspected to be Minoan, but that doesn't mean Greek and Minoan are related either.
