Apollo and Hyacinthus – Greek Mythology

The story of Apollo and Hyacinthus is indeed a tragic one. Hyacinthus was the son of the King of Sparta and he was beloved by the god Apollo. Apollo would often leave his shrine in Delphi to go play with his young friend. Apollo would take him through the woods and up mountain sides, and he would teach Hyacinthus gymnastics.

One summer afternoon, the two decided to play discus. Each tried to outdo the other and on Apollo’s turn, he spun with all his strength and sent the discus higher and higher. Hyacinthus ran to catch it. The discus fell on the ground but do the forceful throw, it bounced off the ground and hit Hyacinthus in the head. Hyacinthus fell to the ground as blood fell from the wound.

Apollo ran over and picked his friend up onto his lap. He tried to stop the bleeding but it was no use. Hyacinthus’ eyes lost their gleam and his body became weaker and weaker. Apollo sobbed over what he had done as his best friend died in his arms.
