"The Pythia was the priestess at Apollo's oracle in Delphi.
The name comes from Python, the dragon that was slain by Apollo.
The Pythia operated as a vehicle for Apollo's will to be known to those on earth.
A believer would make a sacrifice and present a question to a male priest.
The male priest would then present the question to the Pythia.
The Pythia sat on a bronze tripod in the adytum, or inner chamber of Apollo's temple.
In this sacred chamber the spirit of Apollo overcame the Pythia and inspired the prophecy.
Some mythic traditions say the Pythia's trance was induced by vapors from a chasm below the temple or from chewing laurel leaves."
