the oracle of delphi
THE ORACLE OF DELPHI
  • Delphi was an ancient Greek town where there was the most important oracle of the ancient world.
  • The town is mentioned from the Homeric Ages known as Pytho.
  • In the beginning of the historic ages it was a town of the ancient Phocis but later it became the panhellenic centre and a sacred town of the ancient Greeks.
  • It was also the centreof the Delphic Amphictiony.
  • Delphi held an important position until the end of the 4th century A.D. when the oracle closed by the decree of the emperor Theodosius I.
  • In the next centuries the town declined and it was abandoned during the period of the slavic invasion.
