Apulu is the god of the Sun and light, thunder and lightning, healing and plague, as well as the protector of divination, but he also has volcanic and infernal characteristics.
He was previously known as Rath, Śuri, Usil and Vetis, among other names. The name Apulu or Aplu did not come directly from Greece but via a Latin center, probably Palestrina.
