Apo became the Mountain God because of this legend:
Tatum Yach, Son of the Sun, hearing rumors of empires in the great northern continent, the Son of the Sun sent his trusted explorer Apo sailing up to greet them. Tatum's son, Roca, was promoted to Heir and a day of rejoicing proclaimed throughout the realm. His son died of an illness while in the high mountains on a hunting expedition. Schools were created in Moche to train the youth there in Incan ways, so the province could one day freely join the empire; these efforts are slowly turning the people to favor the Incan Empire. The neutral city of Huari was given much food to show them one of the many benefits of Inca rulership and agreeing the pay tribute to the Empire. Inca engineering laid a road leading from Cuzco in the Andes down to Maranga on the coast, the first of many to come.

APO is the official United States Postal Service abbreviation for the Army Post Office. This is an official US Post Office for those in the US military, who may be in unusual parts of the world, and may not have a permanent address.

APO is the equivalent of the city in your address; the state is filled in normally. You can look up state abbreviations, including special military ones, in the United States Postal Service official abbreviations node.

This is one of the few times when you should trust E2 more than the 'authorities'. When you try to send something to an APO address, it's about even odds that your local Post Office clerk will tell you that you have an invalid address. This is not true. It will be up to you to educate them.

See also FPO (Fleet Post Office).

Ap"o (#). [Gr. . See Ab-.]

A prefix from a Greek preposition. It usually signifies from, away from, off, or asunder, separate; as, in apocope (a cutting off), apostate, apostle (one sent away), apocarpous.
