The Ancient Myths of Delphi, Greece

In myths dating to the classical period of ancient Greece (510-323 BC), Zeus determined the site of Delphi when he sought to find the centre of his “Grandmother Earth” (Gaia). He sent two eagles to fly in opposite directions from the top of Mount Olympus, and the path of the eagles crossed over Delphi where the navel of Gaia was found.

The Oracle of Delphi, or Pythia, was famous throughout ancient Greece. People from faraway lands would flock to seek advice. Pythia served the god Apollo after he had slain Python, the dragon who protected the navel of the Earth. As a tribute to Apollo, the Pythian Games were held every four years thus the pre-cursor of the Olympic games.

Delphic Maxims by Panos Kaltsis
The Delphic maxims are a set of 147 aphorisms inscribed at Delphi. Originally, they were said to have been given by the Greek god Apollo’s Oracle at Delphi and were therefore attributed to Apollo himself. Perhaps the most famous of these maxims is ‘know thyself,’ which was carved into the Temple of Apollo at Delphi.
