Apollo and Python
Apollo, the son of Zeus and Leto (a Titan’s daughter), was one of the most important and complex of the Olympian Gods in Greek mythology.
He has been variously recognized as the God of light and the sun, truth and prophesy, music, poetry and more.
He is also associated with medicine and healing, whether through the God himself or mediated through his son Asclepius. But at the same time Apollo was considered a God who could bring ill-health and deadly plague.
As the patron of Delphi, Apollo was the prophetic deity of the Delphic Oracle.
