Athena in a Georgian house?

I've just received the link to an interview I recorded recently with Classics Confidential that bears on this blog's topic, although it does bear more directly on the topic of another blog I write on who "owns" myth (http://owning-myth.blogspot.co.uk/). I talk about my interest in a chimneypiece panel depicting the Choice of Hercules in the Adam Room in Grove House at Roehampton. One of the figures/virtues Hercules is contemplating between is an Athena-esque image of Virtue/Hard Work/Mind with helmet and serpent  Here's the link to the Classics Confidental site. Clicking here will take you directly to the video.
