Sun Ray is a Greek myth technology in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Apollo and can be researched at the Armory or Archery Range. Once researched, it increases the attack of archers, Centaurs, and Manticores by +10%.

After patch 1.9 of the Extended Edition, Sun Ray also provides the same attack bonus to Medusae.

Mythology[]

Apollo was known as "Phoebus," the "radiant," and had a close connection to Helios, the sun god. Apollo is often shown holding a bow and arrow symbolizing the sun's rays, as he was the god of archery (as art, not for warfare or hunting).
