Ancient Ruins: The Oracle of Delphi

Delphi was an ancient sanctuary of the Pythia, located on the south-western slope of Mount Parnassus in central Greece.

The Pythia was established as a high priest cult around the 8th century BC (although some sources suggest they may be present in some form as early as 1400 BC), and continued to be consulted for important political and religious decisions until the 4th century AD.

The Pythian is one of the best-documented religious institutions of the classical Greeks, with the high priestess serving as an oracle, uttering prophecies under divine possession by Apollo from a sanctuary.
