- the centre of the world
Zeus, The King of the Gods, let his eagles go from either ends of the world. They met at the very centre - Delphi.
|Delphi is the most holy site in the Greek world. It was home to Apollo, the god of prophecy, light and civilisation. But Dionysos, the god of wine and theatre, was also worshipped here and he was a god who caused disorder wherever he went.|
In this picture you can see Apollo's temple, where the oracle was delivered, and just above it the theatre of Dionysos. The Apollonian and the Dionysiac side by side. The building below the temple, without a roof, is the Treasury of the Athenians.
