The Vedic Rudra has some similar functions with Apollo.
The terrible god is called " The Archer ", and the bow is also an attribute of Shiva.
Rudra could bring diseases with his arrows, but he was able to free people of them, and his alternative Shiba, is a healer physician god.
However the Indo-European component of Apollo, does not explain his strong relation with omens, exorcisms, and with the oracular cult.
