Delfi

Delphi was an ancient Greek city that served the most important oracle in the ancient world. The city is mentioned since the Homeric times called Pytho. At the beginning of historical times was one of the ancient cities of Phocis, but gradually the city's role was strengthened and developed at the national center and sacred city of the ancient Greeks. It was also a center of the Delphic Amphictyony. Delphi retained their important position until the end of the fourth century AD, when it was finally clear to the oracle by decree of Emperor Theodosius A. Over the following centuries, the city declined and was finally abandoned in the period of the Slavic invasions.
