Apollo was the god of archery, music, poetry, the sun, light and knowledge.

Apollo was the son of Zeus and Leto and had a twin sister, Artemis.  His mother, fearful of revenge from Hera, Zeus’s wife, chose the small island of Delos to birth Apollo. To keep him safe from Hera, his mother fed him nectar and ambrosia which was said to immediately transfer him from babe to man in a day.  

Apollo was a very important god as he had many responsibilities. He had many special powers including the ability to see into the future and power over light. He could heal people or cause disease and illness with his expertly shot silver bows.  Above all, Apollo was a god of justice, law and order. 

Apollo is a variegated colorway on a white base with splashes of aqua and gold with speckles.
