Apollon (Excerpt from Wikipedia)

Apollo with lyre (fresco, House of Augustus, now in the Palatine Antiquarium in Rome, around 20 v. Chr.)
Apollo (Ancient Greek Ἀπόλλων, Latin Apollo, German and Apollo) was in Greek and Roman mythology, the god of light, healing, of spring, of moral purity and temperance, and the prophecy and the arts, especially music, poetry and singing; he was also the god of archers. As the son of Zeus and the goddess Leto he belonged as his twin sister Artemis to the Olympic gods, the twelve main gods of the Greek pantheon. The sanctuary at Delphi, the most important oracle of the ancient world, was dedicated to him.

Origin and Name

The origin of the cult of Apollo is suspected in Asia Minor. The etymology of the name Apollo is unclear. Maybe he meant in Greek "Herald," "destroyer" or "destroyer" or "evil defenders". Homer called it in the Iliad Smintheus (ie: "Rattenverschlinger") and "far off Apt." As Phoebus Apollo ("the Shining", Latinized: Phoebus), he was also identified with the sun god Helios. Other names were Boëdromios, "under the rallying cry helping bring about Rushing," and Loxias.
Pythagoreans and Platonists, the most revered Apollo, were convinced that his name had a philosophical meaning. They interpreted it as A-pollon ("non-Many"), composed of a- ("not" alpha privative) and Pollon ("good"). In it she saw an allusion to the One, the highest, absolutely transcendent principle, the opposite of the multitude. According to this interpretation, the attributes of the Neoplatonist Plotinus, the Pythagoreans, is "Apollo" of the gods name of the One. In Plato's works this etymology of the name Apollo is not expressly stated, but he seems to have known her. In research, it is assumed that they are "unwritten doctrine" was one of his only verbally mediated. [1]

Write-ups

Apollo with a bow and arrow (broken off here) (statue, now in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford)
As protector of the arts and music Apollo was the nine Muses ago (nickname Musagetes) and was also an atonement God. Sometimes he was also known as Apollo Epicurius, as god of healing viewed (he sent the plague in the Trojan War to the camp of the Greeks and saved the inhabitants of Figalia before the plague). [2] But in other areas of life, he played a role He did (like the Babylonian god Nergal) death and destruction, while also rescue from danger (eg in the function of Apollo Smintheus, the "destroyer of mice" or of Apollo Lykeios as protector of flocks from wolves.) , As a god of healing were associated with him the prophecy and oracles. By the death of pythons came at the Apollo clairvoyant abilities and Apollon Pythios was named in his honor the Pythian Games were celebrated.
He could give the gift of prophecy and of mortals how to Cassandra, daughter of Priam. In the Trojan War, he was on the side of the Trojans, reaching a targeted bow shots in the fighting; avenger he sent with his arrows the plague in the camp of the Greeks, because they had taken and enslaved the daughter of a priest of Apollo caught.
Apart from its typical figure reports such as arts competition with the shepherd god Pan occurs Apollo in striking many stories that are told of him as an avenger or slayer on. So he killed the giant Tityus and Niobe, who tried to rape his mother; he killed (and skinned) and the satyr Marsyas, because of the settled accuse, to make beautiful music as the god. Orestes he ordered to kill his own mother, Clytemnestra, in order to avenge the murder of his father Agamemnon. The Furies who do not tolerate such a thing, Orest beat it with madness, Apollo defended him but then successfully before the Areopagus in Athens against them and Clytemnestra spirit.
narratives
The first act in the life of Apollo was killing the serpent Python, his mother Leto of the enemy. Apollo Python met with an arrow. Python escaped serious injuries to the oracle of Mother Earth to Delphi, which was so named in honor of Delphyne, the wife of Python. Apollon followed Python in the shrine, killing him beside the holy gap. Since these snake that had possessed extraordinary prophetic powers, a subsidiary of Gaia had been, he had to go to the atonement by Tarra, Crete, Crete and there submit to a purification ceremony.
Once Apollon even dared to rebel against his father Zeus: When he had killed Apollo's son Asclepius, Apollo avenged himself by killing the Cyclops. As punishment for this act had Apollon then work in the sheepfolds of King Admetus of Pherae or its cows beware. Since he had come near the Admetus was a stranger, and got a very friendly, he made sure that his animals took all the twins and also helped him here, Alcestis to win the daughter of Pelias. In addition, he helped him against Thanatos (death) when he should die.
At the dawn of winter Apollo flew in a chariot drawn by swans cars in the "land of the Hyperboreans," ie, the land beyond the north wind.
