The Legend of
Apollo & Hyacinth
Hyacinth was a beautiful athletic youth and lover of the Sun God Apollo.
Hyacinth was a beautiful youth and lover of the Sun God Apollo. One day Apollo heaved his discus toward the Sun with all his strength and skill. Hyacinth jumped to retrieve it, when tragedy struck. Hyacinth crumpled, wounded by the flying discus, and lay dying upon the ground. Struck by grief, Apollo would not allow Hades, God of Death, to claim the beautiful youth. Instead, the Sun God transformed Hyacinth into an array of small star shaped flowers, to celebrate his loved one for all eternity.
