On this page, you will find all the entries of my Month of Devotional Thought dedicated to Apollon, the Far-Shooter, the Pythian, the Slayer of Tityos, God of Oracles, Music, Purification, etc. This edition is a bit longer, as when I wrote about the etymology and epithets of Apollon, I found that just the etymology was already a large blog post on its own. So I decided to make another post later for the epithets. A similar thing happened with the festivals, as I wanted to discuss several of the Laconic festivals in addition to the others. Originally I had intended to just merge two similar subjects together to make room for these, but later I reconsidered and decided to just add two more posts at the end of the MDT.
