Best Answer

The were two main cults, the Pythian Apollo in Delphi and the Delian Apollo in the island of Delos. The Pythian Apollo was an oracular deity. He was the patron of Delhi and the prophetic god of the Oracle of Delphi (Pythia) who carried out her divinations at the temple of Apollo and whose prophecies were inspired by Apollo. People came to consult the Pythia from all over the Greek world and beyond. He was also said to have been born in the island of Delos and the temple there was of comparable importance to that of Delphi. In the Delian Apollo cult, sacrifices were offered to him.

There were temples to oracular Apollo elsewhere. Didyma had the second most renown oracle. Clarus also had a famous oracle who was inspired by the Apollo Clarius.

As a god of the arts, shrines were also spread all over Greece and her colonies.

As a patron of the colonies he was also worshiped in the colonies.

Who is the Roman goddess of sun and music?

Apollo. In the religion of the early Romans there's no trace of the worship of Apollo. The Romans were introduced to his divinity by the Greeks, and adopted all of their ideas about him from them as well. There's no doubt that the Romans knew of his worship amongst the Greeks from a very early time, and tradition says that they consulted Apollo's oracle at Delphi even before the expulsion of the kings, but the first temple that was raised to him by the Romans is in 430 BC. That temple was raised to him for the purpose of averting a plague.
