Stories of Apollo
Transcript of Stories of Apollo
By: Anna Moore, Christin Walls, and Hannah Hardin
Latona, the goddess of darkness, had an affair with Jupiter which resulted in her two children, Apollo and Diana.
She is denied a drink by jeering men, so she uses her powers to turn them into frogs.
Apollo is raised by the Nine Muses and becomes the god of music and light.
Diana is raised by Hecate, the queen of witches and becomes the goddess of hunting, animals, and such.
Apollo befriends Hyacinthus, the son of the king of Sparta.
Apollo and Marpessa
Marpessa was a mortal woman who beared the love of Apollo and Idas, but favored Idas.
However, her father does not want her to marry Idas, but Neptune gives him a golden chariot to take Marpessa and leave together.
Marpessa and Idas run away together, but are stopped by Apollo who refuses to let Marpessa love Idas.
Apollo plans to fight Idas, but the gods command Apollo to let Marpessa choose who she wants to marry.
Marpessa chooses Idas, because he is mortal and will lover her forever.
Phaeton and Aesculapius
Apollo had two sons, Phaeton and Aesculapius, who both had tragic deaths.
Phaeton died by riding his father's chariot in sky which results in Jupiter sending a thunderbolt at him, thus killing him.
Aesculapius becomes a very talented physician, but Jupiter kills him in fear of him becoming too talented and eventually allowing men to escape death.

The Athletic Games
As the result of Apollo killing the fierce dragon named Python, the people established the Pythian Games in his honor.
There were also many other athletic games such as the Olympic and Nemean Games both established in honor of Jupiter.
Many activities took place at these games such as throwing the spear, running, wrestling, and even poetry and music.
