Gods of Olympus


In Greek mythology, Apollo is the god who has power over the sea, light, the sun, healing, art, archery, divination and prophecy, colonists, dance, reason, and who also protects herds. He is the son of Zeus and Leto and twin brother of the goddess Artemis.

Apollo is also known as the leader of the Muses. Thanks to them, he is often associated with music, history or poetry. In art, Apollo is often contrasted with Dionysus, as he is associated with harmony, order and reason. Dionysos, on the other hand, is the god of wine, emotion and chaos.

Asclepius (the god of medicine) is one of his many sons.

At Delphi, Apollo killed Python, who was pursuing his mother, Leto. In doing so, he fulfilled a prophecy that he would be victorious over subconscious horrors. Later, he was also associated with Helios.
