Apollo's chief epithet was Phoebus ( literally «bright»). It was very commonly used by both the Greeks and Romans for Apollo's role as the god of light. Like other Greek deities, he had a number of others applied to him, reflecting the variety of roles, duties, and aspects ascribed to the god.
Apollo is the Greek God of the sun, light, music, truth, healing, poetry, and prophesy, and one of the most well-known Gods in Greek mythology. Known as the ideal of youth and athleticism, Apollo is the son of the Zeus and Leto; and his twin sister, Artemis, is the goddess of the moon and the hunt.
