Apollo

Apollo (Homeric Greek: Ἀπόλλων, Apollōn; Latin: Apollō)[1], also called Phoebus (bright)[2], is the god of the sun, disease, and truth. He is often depicted beardless, in contrast to most other Greek dieties, and youthful. He sided with the Trojans throughout the war, perhaps first sparked by the abduction of his priests' daughter, Chryseis, by [Agamemnon]. This act drove the priest to grief, enraging Apollo and driving him to strike a plague against the Argives. Eventually the girl is released, but Apollo remains on the Trojan side.
