Apollo was a god in the ancient Greek and Roman pantheons.


According to myth, Apollo slew Python, the dragon of Mount Parnassus and disposed of its carcass in a crevice from which the serpent's fumes were inhaled by the Pythía for her predictions.[1]


Indiana Jones visited the temple dedicated to Apollo in 1922.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

The son of Zeus and the goddess Leto, and twin brother to Artemis, Apollo was the god of arts (particularly music and poetry), foresight, truth, healing and archery; in addition to these, he was also the god of light, and drove the sun across the sky;

In later classical poetry–particularly from the Roman period–he was amalgamated with Helios, much as his twin Artemis was identified with Selene as goddess of the moon.
