HECAERGUS

ΕΚΑΕΡΓΟΣ

A surname of Apollo, of the same meaning as Hecaerge in the case of Artemis. (Hom. Il. i. 147.) Here too tradition has metamorphosed the attribute of the god into a distinct being, for Servius (ad Aen. xi. 532, 858) speaks of one Hecaergus as a teacher and priest of Apollo and Artemis.
