Would you be interested in having a discussion about the Seleucid and the Indo-Greek kingdom?

About where they got the name Apollo for Apollo 13?

Not really. But you being a nice enough geezer who seems to be utterly fucked in the head such a topic might be fun. 13 is my lucky number.

He was a Sky God so the answer is obvious but I suppose crack-pots or conspiracy theorists have a different answer.
....so let's hear it.

I was born on the 13th so yet again I concur with Mr. Shaw.

Obviously but there are usually other meanings:


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollodotus_I

Apollo goes fine with their whole "out of India Gypsies" chic,the Augustines like to emulate.

His son Menander:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menander_I

And again the reference to an 8 spoked wheel(the anus apparently):

And one other alternative:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seleucus_I_Nicator

Wikicrackpedia wrote:Seleucus now held the whole of Alexander's conquests excepting Egypt and moved to take possession of Macedonia and Thrace. He intended to leave Asia to Antiochus and content himself for the remainder of his days with the Macedonian kingdom in its old limits. He had, however, hardly crossed into the Chersonese when he was assassinated by Ptolemy Keraunos near Lysimachia September (281 BC).

It seems certain that after taking Macedonia and Thracia, Seleucus would have tried to conquer Greece. He had already prepared this campaign using the numerous gifts presented to him. He was also nominated an honorary citizen of Athens.[49]

Antiochus founded the cult of his father. A cult of personality formed around the later members of the Seleucid dynasty and Seleucus was later worshipped as a son of god. One inscription found in Ilion advises priests to sacrifice to Apollo, the ancestor of Antiochus' family. Several anecdotes of Selecus' life became popular in the classical world.[50]
