Greek Mythology

Name: Apollo
Domain: The God of Prophecy
Weapon: Bow and Arrow


Apollo was the Greek god of prophecy, healing and music.

During the Trojan War he helped Paris obtain revenge on the hero Achilles by helping Paris slay Achilles with an arrow.

Apollo was the Greek god of music, and was often seen playing the lyre. He did not invent the lyre. He was given the lyre by Hermes. Some say that Apollo created the lute, but he was far more proficient with the lyre. During a music competition Apollo competed against Pan. King Midus said he preferred Pan's music even though Apollo had won the competition. In retaliation Apollo made King Midus' ears resemble those of a donkey.
