MYTHOLOGY OF DAFNE

Apollo was a great archer, but sometimes he was a little full of himself. One day he caught sight of, the son of. Eros was also an archer, and his arrows were responsible for instilling the twists and turns of love and lust in a person’s heart. Apollo teased young Eros, pitting down his abilities as an archer, claiming that one so small could make no difference with his arrows.


Angry at this insult, Eros shot two arrows, one tipped in gold, one blunted and tipped with lead. The arrow dipped in gold had the power to   create insatiable lust in a person, while the other created absolute abhorrence towards all things romantic and passionate. The unfortunate soul who was struck with that arrow would have no desire to love anyone. The arrow dipped in gold struck Apollo, but the arrow dipped in lead struck fair Daphne.

Daphne was the daughter of the river god. Apollo chased down the maiden, desperate for her love, but she wanted nothing to do with him, and  she ran from him endlessly. Soon, she grew   weary in her running and that Apollo would ultimately catch her. Fearful, she called out to her father for help. As all gods of water posses the ability of transformation, Peneus transformed his daughter into a laurel tree. Suddenly her legs took root, and her arms grew into long and slender branches.

Apollo reached the laurel tree, and, still enamoured with Daphne, held the tree in a special place in his heart. He claimed the tree the   as his special tree, and adorned himself with some of it’s leaves. And that is why the laurel was, and still is, a symbol of the god Apollo.

Above story was assumed to be lived in the area called    Harbiye (old name was Daphne) which is part of Antakya in the south edge of Turkey . Harbiye is very famous with its Waterfalls and unique local delicious cuisine.
