Apollo was the great Olympian god of light and the sun, prophecy and oracles, healing, plague and disease, music, song and poetry, archery, and the protection of the young. His father was Zeus and his twin sister was the virgin goddess Artemis the Huntress. He was depicted as a handsome, beardless youth with long hair and various attributes including: a wreath and branch of laurel; bow and quiver; raven; and lyre. Medicine and healing were associated with Apollo, whether through the god himself or mediated through his son Asclepius.
