A God of Contradictions

Apollon is God of:
  • Light and Darkness
  • Healing and Plagues
  • Saviour and Death-bringer
  • Boy protector and boy slayer
  • Colonization/Exploring and Home/Doorway
  • Purification and Murder
  • Who Shoots/Works from afar and One who helps and is often seen in battle
  • Truth and Poetry (which is many times a lie)
  • Who shines like the sun and comes like the night
  • Of youth and the transition to adulthood
  • Of the pastures and of the city
  • Of Music an Holy Silence

Does this has any correlation with "Nothing to Excess"? Just a small thought.
