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

Biography[]

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]

Legacy[]

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

Behind the scenes[]

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.
