"The Oracle at Delphi: The oracle at Delphi is a figure of great historical importance that was, and still is, shrouded in mystery. She spoke for the god Apollo and answered questions for the Greeks and foreign inquirers about colonization, religion, and power. By her statements Delphi was made a wealthy and powerful city-state. The oracle was at the height of power around 1600 B.C. when Greece was colonizing the Mediterranean and Black Seas (Hale), but was stationed in Delphi from 1400 B.C. to 381 A.D.(Roach). Despite her long tenure it is still debated today how she received the words from Apollo, weather by hallucination or suggestion."--Http://www.coastal.edu/ashes2art/delphi2/misc-essays/oracle_of_delphi.html

"Todos los dioses tienen sus enemigos, a los que deben vencer y aniquilar. El enemigo de Apolo era el gran dragón Python, al que debía enfrentarse y dar muerte antes de poder establecer su templo y su oráculo en Delfos". Es éste el mito que Fontenrose desentraña magistralmente al explorar no sólo las diversas fuentes y versiones sobre el mismo, sino también al relacionarlo con otros mitos griegos, como el que narra el combate de Zeus con Typhon y con los mitos de pueblos culturalmente cercanos
