Dear Mythology Kids,

If you missed class we completed the following:

1. We discussed the themes found within "Demeter and Persephone" and "Archne." PLEASE obtain this information from a friend, as it will be useful for a future assignment.

2. We then moved on and discussed Artemis and Apollo. I have included the information on the gods for you below. PLEASE make sure you transfer that information to your green handout detailing the gods.

Artemis and Apollo






VIRGIN!!!!!!!!
Kill for virginity….she asked her father for eternal virginity, change your mind
ACTEON is a hunter….. changes him to stag and his hounds destroy him
ORION is a hunter ….Apollo kills ORION…..
Apollo is jealous of his sister ….scorpion and it stings Orion….Artemis places Orion and the scorpion in the stars
Apollo falls in love with Daphne…VIRGIN (Artemis), REVENGE!
Apollo is competitive…..”ROCK competitive”
2nd fav. To Zeus…..perfect
Ephesus is her city state.
Apollo is the god of "Truth." 
His city state is called Delphi
He destroys the Python that tormented his mother and then draped its skin over his throne.
The women that worked for him were called Oracle or Pythian preistesses
He had his own athletic games called the Pythian Games; they were held in honor of the Python that he killed.
