You dare ask what a God is? ... What is a God? We are something that insignificant mortals are incapable of understanding... Much less, allowed to ask.

It has been confirmed, in both the Tenkai Hen Overture Movie Pamphlet and in an Interview with Kurumada at the French magazine Animeland Vol 117, that Apollo simply erased the memories of the Saints and Athena. What is likely to have happened is that Apollo simply rewinded time.
