Ἀπόλλων:

Phoebus, of you even the swan sings with clear voice to the beating of his wings, as he alights upon the bank by the eddying river Peneus; and of you the sweet-tongued minstrel, holding his high-pitched lyre, always sings both first and last.
And so hail to you, lord! I seek your favor with my song.
Homeric Hymn to Apollo 21.1–5

    Ah, the golden boy… most Greek of the Greek gods, who apparently was lifted from their Eastern neighbours! That’s probably one of my favourite ironies of Greek mythology: that ever-so-Greek Apollo, lord of moderation, was Eastern – which the Greeks (and later the Roman, who used the term to include the Greeks themselves) used as a term of near-abuse, indicating indulgence and excess. And Dionysus, lord of excess, was probably home-grown Greek! Love a good inconsistency.

    Again, I like that you’ve included the Athenian pictures in the background – adds nice detail.

    My 7 year old daughter Alice was trolling through the images on RB and she found this image and wanted to say this. “This is a great piece of work. I love it. great job.” I think it is very good as well. lovely detail. Now I have to favourite it because she wants to see it again and again. LOL
