GREECIE - The ancient city of DELPHI

(3 votes)

   DELPHI in ancient times was a sacred precinct that served as the seat of PYTHIA, the major oracle who was consulted about important decisions throughout the ancient classical world.
    The ancient Greeks considered the centre of the world to be in DELPHI, marked by the stone monument known as the omphalos (navel).
     The sacred precinct of GE or GAIA was in the region of PHOCIS, but its management had been taken away from the PHOCIANS, who were trying to extort money from its visitors, and had been placed in the hands of an amphictyony, or committee of persons chosen mainly from CENTRAL GREECE.
  It is now an extensive archaeological site, and since 1938 a part of PARNASSOS NATIONAL PARK.

    Adjacent to the sacred precinct is a small modern town of the same name.
