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 image 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.
