This piece originally featured in my 2012 release, "Ode To Ancient Rome". The piece is in the mysterious sounding ancient Greek Chromatic Phrygian Mode, in just intonation, featuring a percussive style of lyre playing, whereby the lyre strings are hit with a small wooden baton, rather like a hammered dulcimer.

Minerva "was the ancient Roman goddess of wisdom, medicine, commerce, handicrafts, poetry, the arts in general, and later, war. In many ways similar to the Greek goddess Athena, she had important temples in Rome and was patron of the Quinquatras festival." (The Ancient History Encyclopedia)
