Apollo raped Kreousa- she secretly abandoned their child, assuming thereafter that the god had allowed him to die.

Ion however, is saved to become a ward of Apollos temple at Delphi.In the play, Kreousa and her husband Xouthos go to Delphi to seek a remedy for their childlessness- Apollo, speaking through his oracle, gives Ion to Xouthos as a son, enraging the apparently still childless Kreousa. Mother tries to kill son, son traps mother at an altar and is about to do her violence- just then, Apollos priestess appears to reveal the birth tokens that permit Kreousa to recognize and embrace the child she thought she had lost forever.

Ion must accept Apollos duplicity along with his benevolence toward his son.
