At the Oracle of Delphi, Apollo’s mysterious priestess, the Pythia, conveyed the god’s prophecies. Here are five fascinating oracular statements which helped to shape ancient Greek civilization.

The landscape of ancient Greece was scattered with mysterious sites and sanctuaries, some of which were also home to oracles. Each oracle was associated with a particular deity. Zeus, the king of the gods, had oracular sanctuaries at both Olympia and Dodona. However, the most important oracle throughout Greek history was the Oracle of Delphi. Here the divine wisdom and prophecies of the god Apollo were conveyed by the mysterious priestess, the Pythia. People would visit Delphi from across Greece and beyond in the hope of receiving the words of Apollo.
