"Palladion" has two sources:
|In classical mythology, the "palladion" was a statue of Athena whose
presence was thought to guarantee the safety of Troy; only after Odysseus
and Diomedes stole the image were the Greeks able to capture Troy.
By extension, "palladion" is used to mean a safeguard.
| The name is a reference to
the Italian Renaissance architect whose work on proportion and harmony
in design remains one of the foundations of Western architecture.
