This next historic figure wasn’t a real person, but rather a Greek and Roman god. Apollo is considered to be the god of archery, music, dance, truth, prophecy, healing, diseases, the sun, poetry, and more. He is the son of Zeus, and twin brother to Artemis, the goddess of the hunt. In many of the stories about Apollo, he protected people from evil, as well as epidemics. (That would come in handy today, considering our current pandemic.) There are many different busts of Apollo out there. While most of their features look similar, no two are exactly alike. Obviously, this bust represents the face of the model, rather than the god himself.
