The Sanctuary of Apollo, Delphi.

The Sanctuary of Apollo, Delphi.
«Είπατε τω βασιληι, χαμαί πέσε δαίδαλος αυλά, Ουκέτι Φοίβος έχει καλύβαν ου μαντίδα δάφνην, ου παγάν λαλεούσαν, απέσβετο και λάλον ύδωρ.» Δηλαδή: «Πείτε στον βασιλιά, ότι στο χώμα κείτεται ο έντεχνος αυλός, ο Φοίβος δεν έχει πια κατοικία, ούτε δάφνη μαντική, ούτε πηγή ομιλούσα. Χάθηκε και το νερό που μιλούσε».

Delphi is perhaps best known for the oracle at the sanctuary that was dedicated to Apollo during the classical period. According to Aeschylus in the prologue of the Eumenides, it had origins in prehistoric times and the worship of Gaea. In the last quarter of the 8th century BCE there is a steady increase in artifacts found at the settlement site in Delphi, which was a new, post-Mycenaean settlement of the late 9th century. Pottery and bronze work as well as tripod dedications continue in a steady stream, in comparison to Olympia. Neither the range of objects nor the presence of prestigious dedications proves that Delphi was a focus of attention for a wide range of worshippers, but the large quantity of high value goods, found in no other mainland sanctuary, certainly encourages that view.
