Of all the Olympian deities, I find Apollo most intriguing. As patron of the arts, music, reason and poetry, he seems a fitting archetype for the purpose of this blog. Hence, the image currently being used as the website’s flag is of Apollo.

This imagecropped-Apollo-Wearing-Laurel-Wreath-1.jpg is taken from a wine-cup, or σκύφος, and is fit to bursting with Apollonian symbolism. I shall update this post with further elaboration of these symbols, but I hope sufficient enough reason has been given for now as to why I chose this image as representative of this blog.

Await some sort of short commentary on this image and my views on Apollo more generally, for he is a figure most deserving of academic inquiry.
