In ancient Rome, it was believed that every person, location, or group had a unique genius. This spirit acted as a safeguard or mentor that followed them throughout their lifespan. Genius was a guardian deity who aided a person's destiny, prosperity, and creativity.
In ancient Rome, Apollo was one of the most important and widely revered deities. He was originally a Greek god, but the Romans adopted and incorporated many aspects of Greek mythology into their own religious beliefs. He was associated with music, poetry, prophecy, archery, healing, the sun, and more.
