of the young.

When Leto was pregant with the twins she was pursued relentlessly by the goddess Hera, who drove her from land to land preventing her from finding a place to rest and give birth. The floating island of Delos eventually provided her with refuge. The Myth of Apollo and Artemis's Birth PYTHON was a monstrous serpent which Gaia (Mother Earth) appointed to guard the oracle at Delphoi. When Apollo laid claim to the shrine, he slew the dragon with his arrows. The oracle and festival of the god were then named Pytho and Pythian from the rotting corpse of the beast. According to some, Apollo slew the monster to avenge his mother Leto, who had been pursued relentlessly by the dragon during her

- Twin Sister of Apollo A Myth of Artemis Artemis, somehow, fell in love. This was with the mortal, Orion. As she was in love, her twin brother, Apollo, grew jealous of him for taking his sister's time and attention from him. So, in order to get rid of Orion, Apollo waited until Orion went swimming in the ocean. When Orion did, Apollo wagered with Artemis that she couldn't hit the "floating object" in the water. Artemis, beinging highly skilled with the bow, agreed, not knowing that the "floating object" was actually her lover. Artemis shot Orion, and when she realized her mistake, she quickly turned him into a comstellation and sent him to the sky. Resources "Apollon." Theoi Greek Mythology.
