1862 Apollo

This minor planet is named after Apollo, a god from Greek myth, brother of Artemis, son of Leto. He is a god of many domains: music, art, prophecy, healing, plague, poetry, archery, and later the sun and light. He is sometimes leader of the muses, master of the lyre, and always clean-shaven. He has many epithets, the most common of which is Phoebus, used by both the Romans and the Greeks.

The symbol of this minor planet is a bow with an arrow nocked, pointing upward, with a solar dot in the center.
