Apollo is a Greek God of the Sun and of Light. He was born on the island of Delos to Zeus and Leto.
Apollo is the ideal of the kouros, which means he has a beardless, athletic and youthful appearance. He is also an oracular god as a patron of Delphi and could predict prophecy through the Delphic Oracle Pythia.
At the parties held on Olympus, Apollo accompanied the 9 Muses on his cithara, while the young goddesses led the dance. Both Leto and Zeus were proud of their son, who was radiant with grace and beauty.
The laurel, used in Greece as a status symbol, was Apollo’s tree.
