  • Apollo's story

    1. 1. APOLLO“The Sun God”
    2. 2. Apollo’s origin • Apollo and artemis were twins. They were the magical children of zeus and Leto. The twins - Apollo and his sister, Artemis - adored their mother.  Apollo, especially, was very protective of his mother.  • When the ancient Romans heard the many Greek myths about Apollo, they loved them!  • The ancient Romans were always borrowing gods from other cultures. When they ran into a myth they liked, they renamed the god and made him or her a Roman god. They loved the myths about Apollo so much that they did not even change his name.Apollo is Apollo in Greek and in Roman mythology, and the stories are the same.
    3. 3. Apollo’s Appearance• Apollos Appearance: A young man with curly golden hair.
    4. 4. Apollo’s Symbol or Attribute:• The Sun itself, the lyre, the bow, and the chariot he drives across the sky daily, borrowed from an earlier pre-Greek Sun god, Helios.
