Hecaergus

*(Ekae/rgos), a surname of Apollo, of the same meaning as Hecaerge in the case of Artemis. (Hom. Il. 1.147.) Here too tradition has metamorphosed the attribute of the god into a distinct being, for Servius (Serv. ad Aen. 11.532, 858) speaks of one Hacaergus as a teacher and priest of Apollo and Artemis.
