In ancient Crete, the double axe was an important sacred symbol of the supposed Minoan religion. In Crete the double axe only accompanies female goddesses, never male gods. It seems that it was the symbol of the arche of the creation (Mater-arche).

Double-headed battle axes, as evident from their names, were used as weapons in battles. Reportedly, they have been in use since the stone age. Europeans, specifically viking warriors, were the first ones to create an axe just for battles.

According to Greek mythology Hephaestus, god of blacksmiths, struck Zeus, Father of the Gods, over the head with his double-headed axe.
