Apollo is one of the most important and complex of the Olympian Gods deities in classical Greek mythology. Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of light and the sun, healing, music, poetry, and more. Hermes created the lyre for him, and it became a common attribute of Apollo. As the patron of Delphi he was an oracular god the prophetic deity of the Delphic Oracle. Hymns sung to Apollo were called paeans. Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto, and has a twin sister, the chaste huntress Artemis.
One of the characters in Greek mythology called Phaethon (/ˈfeɪ.əθən/; Ancient Greek: Φαέθων, Phaéthōn, pronounced [pʰa.étʰɔ͜ɔn]), the best known was the son of the Oceanid Clymene and the solar deity Apollo or Helios. Alternative, less common genealogies make him a son of Clymenus by Merope, of Helios and Rhode (thus a full brother of the Heliadae) or of Helios and Prote.
In the prevailing account, Phaethon, challenged by his playmates, sought assurance from his mother that his father was the sun god. She gave him the requested assurance and told him to turn to his father for confirmation. He asked his father for some proof that would demonstrate his relationship with the sun. When the god promised to grant him whatever he wanted, he insisted on being allowed to drive the sun chariot for a day. Placed in charge of the chariot, he was unable to control the horses. The earth was in danger of being burnt up and, to prevent this disaster, Zeus killed him with a thunderbolt.
