PHILAMMON

Greek Music God

God of Musicians

If you want a philharmonic God, this is he.

The son of Apollo and Chione, he’s a musician of renown who invented girl choirs and introduced the Mysteries of Demeter to Lerna — presumably with a musical score.

He got together with a nymph called Argiope and they had a son Thamyris, who became a bard.
