Apollo and Lyre This coin depicts Apollo, the Greek god of the Sun, wisdom, prophecy, music, and medicine on the Front. Considered "the most Greek of all gods," Apollo is often shown playing the stringed musical instrument, the lyre. His playing delighted the other gods on Olympus, making them forget all else. So it`s appropriate that a lyre is shown on the reverse. Apollo’s symbols or attributes are the sun, the lyre, the bow, and the chariot he drives the sky daily. He was creative, handsome, and supportive of all the arts. Apollo was the son of the supreme god Zeus and Leto a nymph. He, like his father Zeus, frequently enjoyed the charms of nymphs. His twin sister was Artemis. Apollo also is associated with the cure of diseases. His most famous children were the semi—divine singer Orpheus and Asklepios, the god of healing. ZEUS is king of the gods, ruler of Mt Olympus, and god of the sky. His union with Demeter the Goddess of the harvest, resulted in the birth of twins; Apollo and his sister Artemis. His symbols were the thunderbolt, eagle, bull and oak. Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades drew lots for the Earth, in which Zeus got the sky, Poseidon the sea and Hades was left with the underworld.
