SOL (2)

Roman Sun God 🌞

Roman God of the Sun

Like his Greek version Helios, he drives his fiery chariot across the sky every day. Unless of course it’s raining.

By a strange freak of fate, there is also a Norse Sun Goddess with the same name. See Sol. One of them gave us the terms Solar energy and Solar system, but which?!?
