Best of the best

In Ancient Greece, there were many gods to worship. But if you were a true hellenic spirit, you paid special attention to Apollo. A true divine polymath, Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto, brother to the chaste huntress Artemis, and basically the god of everything cool. Medicine and healing? Apollo. Music and dance? Apollo. Prophecy? Stop by the Oracle of Delphi to find out that Apollo is the god of truth itself. Naturally, Apollo was also considered to be the most beautiful god—the ideal of the kouros, that is, young, beardless, hardbody male perfection.
