Apollon’s MDT – Day 30: Interesting UPG

Χαίρετε ἀναγνώστες!

Today is going to be a very short topic, as I am supposed to talk about any UPG I may have on Apollon. Yet, as I have stated before, I do not really have any personal relationship with Him at all and have no UPG or personal revelation that He shared with me.

Beyond by purifying me of miasma (μίασμα) when I pray for this or protecting me and my kin when leaving the house. So, in lieu of answering the topic of today, I will share the Orphic Hymn to Apollon.
