Apollo

   1. From Roman mythology, he is the son of Jupiter and Latona (The Greeks called her Leto), and the sun god. His twin sister is Diana (The Greeks called her Artemis). The music he plays on his golden lyre delights all on Olympus. He is the archer god and the healer, who first taught men the healing arts. Apollo is also the god of light and truth. His oracle was at Delphi. The dolphin and crow were sacred to him, and the laurel was his tree. Also called Phoebus Apollo by the Romans. Some sources call Helios the sun god, not Apollo. Quadriga is the four horse chariot of the Sun god Apollo, who drove it across the sky each day.
