021 Apollo Pio Clementino

Apollo Homeric Greek: is one of the most important and complex of the Olympian deitiesin ancient Greek
and Roman religion, Greco–Roman Neopaganism, and Greek and Roman mythology. The ideal of the kouros
(a beardless, athletic youth), Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of light and the sun, truth and
prophecy, healing, plague, music, poetry, and more. Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto, and has a twin
sister, the chaste huntress Artemis. Apollo is known in Greek-influenced Etruscan mythology as Apulu.
As the patron of Delphi (Pythian Apollo), Apollo was an oracular god—the prophetic deity of the Delphic
Oracle. Medicine and healing are associated with Apollo, whether through the god himself or mediated
through his son Asclepius, yet Apollo was also seen as a god who could bring ill-health and deadly plague.
Amongst the god's custodial charges, Apollo became associated with dominion over colonists, and as
the patron defender of herds and flocks. As the leader of the Muses(Apollon Musegetes) and director of
their choir, Apollo functioned as the patron god of music and poetry. Hermes created the lyre for him,
and the instrument became a common attribute of Apollo. Hymns sung to Apollo were called paeans.

019 | Demeter

In Greek mythology, Demeter is the goddess of the harvest, who presided over grains, the fertility of the earth,
and the seasons (personified by the Hours). Her common surnames are Sito as the giver of food or corn/grain
and Thesmophoros as a mark of the civilized existence of agricultural society.
Though Demeter is often described simply as the goddess of the harvest, she presided also over the sanctity
of marriage, the sacred law, and the cycle of life and death. She and her daughter Persephone were the central
figures of the Eleusinian Mysteries that predated the Olympian pantheon. In the Linear B Mycenean Greek tablets
of circa 1400-1200 BC found at Pylos, the "two mistresses and the king" are identified with Demeter, Persephone
and Poseidon. Her Roman equivalent is Ceres.
