Roman name: Apollo
Ancient Greek Gods for Kids

Apollo was the son of Zeus, king of all the gods. His mother was the gentle Leto. Apollo had a twin sister, Artemis, the huntress. Apollo had lots of jobs in the ancient Greek god world. One of them was to bring up the sun. Another was to watch over music and musicians. Apollo
was a gentle god. But he could lose his temper if  provoked enough. When he did, Apollo always got even in very clever ways.

There are so many myths about Apollo that, rather than try to explain him, we'll let myths do that instead.
