On the other hand, it is also known as an oracle, the place where the question is asked and it is worth mentioning that there are many significant places in ancient times and most of them belong to ancient Greece. The Romans inherited the oracles of the Greeks and created their own. Meanwhile, the priestesses are fundamental in the use of the oracle; those interested in consulting the oracle, were accustomed to have an interview with the priestesses, days before the formal consultation.
Those who consulted the oracle were people from all social classes. We have very few data about the rituals that were held to consult the oracle, but what it is known is that the priestesses sat in a sort of tripod that was situated in the Adition temple and it was towards the back of the Apollo (god of music) temple. In ancient times, the oracle consultation was an activity that was performed daily and in many cases, people who consulted it, totally dependent on it.
In the beginning of the practice of oracle, the priestesses gave the answers in verse form, but some people saw it as strange that the predictions were in wrong rhythm, being that Apollo was the one who dictated them, so the priestesses chose to deliver them written and stopped singing them.
To date, the effectiveness of the oracle is still cause for study by modern historians and without a doubt, it is because of the number of correct answers that the oracle of Delphi gave at the time, and no one who had requested a consultation dared to contradict. This is precisely one of the reasons why there are legends about the activities of an oracle. It is also important to emphasize that there were times when the oracle was considered a pagan element.
