He is the God of light and art in Greek mythology.
He was also a symbol of inner beauty and intelegence.
Appollo also symbolises knowledge and spirituality.
Appollo was also called lykeios deriving from the word lykos that in greek means wolf. This is simply because the myth sais that his mother was transformed into a wolf before she gave birth to him followed by a whole pack for protection as Zeus ordered. Appollo also symbolises knowledge and spirituality.
Apollo, god of Music, sun, archery, and healing. He is son of Zeus and brother to Artemis goddess of the moon, hunt, and animals.
My favorite story with Apollo and his sister was the one with Orion. Apollo killed Orion with a gigantic scorpion I believe, yet he killed him of of jealousy becaue Apollo didnt like the bond between Orion and his sister Artemis. Artemis couldn't stay mad at her brother forever so she forgave him, so to apologize Apollo put Orion in the stars as a constellation.
Ra, god of the sun and a Solar Deity, ruled Egypt for a long time. He was depicted. To have a hawks head with a solar disc over his head similar to Horus.
Ra is another one who had an intresting story. Ra has a long time nemesis Apophis. Ra would go to the Duat sailing in his Golden boat waking the dead Leading the to Anubis and Osris for judgement. It is a battle every timebecsueapophis will try anything to stop Ra from successfully completing his voyage.
