Delphi: The Sanctuary of Apollo
I 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.
