Unformatted text preview: Click to edit Master subtitle style Roman and Greek Gods. Gods Apollo  Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto. His twin sister is Artemis. He is the god of music, playing a golden lyre. The Archer, far shooting with a silver bow. The god of healing who taught man medicine. The god of light. The god of truth, who can not speak a lie. One of Apollo's more importaint daily tasks is to harness his chariot with four horses an drive the Sun across the sky.  He is famous for his oracle at Delphi. People travled to it from all over the greek world to devine the future.  His tree was the laurel. The crow his bird. The dolphin his animal. ARIES (MARS)  Son of Hera, born without male assistance. He was a supreme fighter, loved battle and cared little about issues, switching sides without scruple. He delighted in massacres.

She caused him to be killed by the Titans, but he was resurrected through the EROS (CUPID)  A primordial god, contemporary of Chaos, who existed before Cronos (Saturn) and Zeus. He came out of an egg that formed the earth and sky when it broke in two. He precipitated the embraces of Gaea (the Earth) and Uranus (the heavens), which resulted in the birth of Oceanus, Tethys, Coeus, and Cronos (Saturn). The Earth and heavens were so tightly embraced that none of the children could rise towards the light until Cronos (Saturn) castrated his father. FAUNUS  A Roman God, Son of Circe and Jupiter.
