Dodona


Less known than Delphi, but in it's days an important oracle. Where the main god in Delphi was Apollo here it was Zeus himself. Where Apollo in Delphi had a beautiful and large temple here Zeus was supposed to be in the oak in the centre of the sanctuary. Where In Delphi the Pythia made contact with the god here the priest directly heard the rustle of the leaves of the oak and knew what Zeus's message was.
