The following reblog of the post entitled, Apollo: wolf-god,” piqued my interest because Apollo, a god considered the most rational, artistic and fastidious of the Olympians, is associated with a wolf. Some denied that Apollo Lykeios had anything to do with wolves, deriving his name from either the place-name Lycia, or else from leukós, white (referring to the sun). Yet, there is still enough traces of evidence that Apollo the worshipped as the Wolf-God.
The Greek god Apollo is the most rational, artistic and fastidious of the Olympians. So why is an animal noted for its ravening nature part of his cult?
