Athena is the lawful goddess of the Healer pantheon.

Encyclopedia entry

Both "Athena" and the alternate spelling "Athene" return this entry:

Athene was the offspring of Zeus, and without a mother. She
sprang forth from his head completely armed. Her favourite
bird was the owl, and the plant sacred to her is the olive.
