One day,Apollo,the symbol of the male beauty,while wandering about in a wood on the banks of the river Thessalia,happened upon the most beautiful maiden Daphné,the nymph of the forest,immediately captured his heart.
But Daphné,the daughter of Peneus,had dedicated herself to Gaia and had pledged to remain virgin.When Daphné noticed Apollo,she tried to flee.As she was about to be caught,the nymph called on her father to save her.Unable to refuse her pleas,he turned her into a laurel tree.

Grieving,the handsome Apollo placed a wreath of laurel leaves on his head.Hencefort,the ancient Spartas and Greeks used laurel wreaths to crown victors,heros,poets and artists.
