If you have not already done so, check the inside back cover of our 2015-16 Roman Calendar for a reproducible worksheet that asks students to engage with the mythology-oriented artwork included in the calendar.
For those completing the worksheet, here is December’s image, question, and answer.
Question: Aside from the lyre, how can you identify this as Apollo?
Answer: The crown of laurel combined with the youthful appearance and the beardless, smooth face indicate that this is Apollo.
