Delphi: The Sanctuary of Apollo

ImageI chose to research on one of the famous Greek sanctuaries, which most of us are familiar with having previously taking Ancient Theater. Delphi, the Sanctuary of Apollo, is located north-west of Athens and lies on a steep slope. It was believed that the Greek god spoke through a vehicle, or a prophecy known as the Pythia. The oracle usually took place once a year on Apollo’s birthday in late February and only answered specific questions but did not predict the future in general.
