Delphic Oracle

Left.Temple complex at Delphi, Greece as it was in 454 BC.

Since ancient times, and certainly by the year 2222 B.C., the sacred site was known for its mysterious cave that issued forth fumes from the earth. These fumes were said to induce a prophetic trance, and eventually a temple complex grew up around the sacred cave.
