(Calendar of the Tetrapolis)The seventh is sacred to Apollo, as the symbolic day of His birthday. “Celebrating the seventh day as the birthday of Apollo: therefore the Athenians honor this day as Apollonian, carrying branches of laurel, crowning the basket (kanoun) and singing hymns to the God.”Schol. Erga 769-771"So, because of the harmonious relationship, he (Hesiod) adapted the seven to the birth of Apollo and, for the fact that it (the seven) has no mother and is inconvenient for women, he has said that it is sacred to Athena."Schol. Erga 769-771(Temple of Apollo at Pompeii with the statue of “Darting Apollo” (copy)
