In a roman myth, Apollo is walking on a beach. Evening is coming and he needs a place to spend the evening. He sees an old man and women ands asks if he could spend the night with them. They take him into their home and give up everything that they own for his comfort. In the morning Apollo wants to reward them for their generosity but does not want to reveal his identity. He decides his gift will be for them to pass away together. Who are these people? Does this myth have a name? How can greek and roman myths be referenced through a description such as this?
