Apollon er måske gud for det, man ikke selv ved og ikke selv kan. Han er gud for spådomskunst, for musik, litteratur og desuden for lægekunst. Hans kendetegn er ungdom - altid skæg og langt hår, som unge mænd har det. Han er en stor bueskytte og ses ofte med bue og pil; men også ofte en lyre i hånden. Apollon er søn af Zeus og Leto, en noget farveløs gudinde. Apollon står Zeus meget nær, og han har også fået plads midt på vestgavlen på Zeustemplet i Olympia.

Greek and Olympian God Apollo was also well known to see the future, the divine gift of prophecy. When you wanted to know something about your future, you would summon Apollo. As the divine God of Light itself, He is capable of seeing into all.

Both marathons began in the city that gave the event its name and followed the 1896 route, ending in the Panathenaic Stadium.
