#Delphi and Delphi (#Δελφοί — Delphoi) is an important site that extends on the slopes of #Mount #Parnassus. In ancient times, Delphi, called ombelico del mondo, was the seat of the most important #Oracle of #Apollo: the Oracle of Delphi. On the lintel of the doorway to the shrine (inside which burned the #φλόξ #άσβεστος, eternal flame) was the famous motto #ΓΝΩΘΙ #ΣΕΑΥΤΟΝ (gnōthi seautón) which means "#know #thyself" and which will be made by #Socrates.
