I must confess. I studied Classic Cultures, but I don't recall this being on of the Gods. I know that the Ancient Etruscans worshiped Apollo. I don't recall that there was another Sun God, but these images of the sun with a human face are prevalent throughout Italy. I think in this blog I offer more questions than I do answers. Was it an import of the Phoenicians or an Ancient Greek subculture that came over with this God?
