The Greek god Apollo is the brother of Artemis (huntress and sometimes thought of as the moon goddess), and the son of Zeus and Leda. Apollo is the god of prophecy, music, and healing, and is sometimes called the sun god, as well. Apollo is associated with the prophecies coming from the Delphic oracle. He is also associated with the laurel, since when he pursued Daphne she was turned into a laurel tree to escape from him. Apollo had few children and many romances. In art, Apollo was usually depicted as a handsome young man, often with a lyre or bow in hand.
