God Apollo was the son of Zeus and Leto. He was born at Delos under a palm tree. As soon as the goddess Themis gave him his first food, ambrosia, and nectar to drink, the baby immediately left the island. He went to Delphi, where he tried to build his own temple. There, the dragon Python stood against him, whom the god killed with his bow, though he was still a child. Apollo named that place Pythos and made it a place of worship and there the famous Oracle of Delphi was created and great celebrations were held in his honor. After the death of the dragon, Apollo was considered the protector of moral order and modesty and the punisher of every transgression. The criminals asked for his help in order to be accepted again by gods and men.
