HYAKINTHOS (or Hyacinthus) was a handsome young Spartan prince loved by the gods Apollon and Zephyros. The West Wind grew jealous of his rival in love, and one day as the pair were playing discus, blew the discus off course causing it to strike Hyakinthos in the head and kill him. The grieving Apollon then transformed the dying youth into a larkspur flower (hyakinthos in Greek) which he inscribed with the wail of mourning "AI, AI."

The Thessalians had their own version of Hyakinthos, who they also gave the name Hymenaios "Of the Hymns." Like his female counterpart Daphne, the northern Hyakinthos was associated with the vale of Tempe, seat of Apollon's cult in the region. His father was named as either King Magnes or Magnesia or Pieros of Pieria--the two regions bordering the vale. Even the Spartans seemed to have acknowledge this tradition when they describe Hyakinthos as the son of the Lapith princess

Bonjour Nikos,
Remarquable macro valorisant bien le sujet par la finesse des détails et une excellente opposition sur l'arrière plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Espectacular y preciosa toma Nikos. El enfoque es muy preciso, por lo que pudiste capar detalladamente esas texturas de aspecto satinado y de color maravilloso. Bien visto el espacio por la buena profundidad conseguida. Un excelente trabajo !!!

Saludos: Josep Ignasi.
