Excursion to Delphi with MMTRAVEL Agency

Excursion to Delphi with MMTRAVEL Agency

High above the Corinthian gulf, on the holy mountain of Parnassus, surrounded by fir trees, lay the temple of god Apollo, Delphi. For many centuries, the voice of Delphi, the most significant temple of all, was the absolute guiding light for all Greeks.


Ordinary people, as well as messengers from various towns, would visit the temple to receive answers and instructions about their future and destiny. The prophecies were obeyed and their powers of persuasion were such, that wars were lost or won, only thanks to a few words spoken by Pythia.

The Delphi oracle, a religious and cultural centre, imposed an international law for the first time in history, that forbade the execution of prisoners of war, the pollution of spring water and the destruction of aqueducts. Delphi affected Greece not only from a religious aspect, but also as regards education and literature, the arts and trade, mainly in relation to the colonies. The offerings of individuals and cities to the oracle of Pythios Apollo were abundant. Over five thousand works of art existed in Delphi, prior to its destruction.

There are numerous reasons to visit Delphi, and visitors leave this atmospheric site with a sense of ecstasy. It is not an exaggeration to say that a trip to Delphi is the experience of a lifetime.

THE “OATH” OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT

(OPIS, 324 BC)


"I wish you now that wars are coming to an end,that you should be all happy in peace.From now on,let all mortals live as one people,in fellowship,for the common prosperity.See the ecumenic world as your homeland,with common laws,where the meritocracy govern regardless of the race.Unlike the narrowminded,I make no distinction between Greeks and barbarians. The origin of the citizens,or the race into which they were born,is of no concern to me.I judge them by one criterion,the individual virtue.

For me any good foreigner is a Greek and any bad Greek is worse than a barbarian.If disputes ever occur among you,you will not resort to weapons,but will solve them in peace.If need be I shall arbitrate between you.Let us see the god not as an autocratic despot,but as the common father of all and thus your conduct will be like the lives of brothers within the same family.

I,on my part,see you all as equal whether you are white or dark-skinned.And I should like you not simply to be subjects of my commonwealth,but members of it and partners.To the best of my ability I shall strive to do what I have promised. This oath,which we have taken tonight with our libations,keep it as a Symbol of Love"


Lord Byron - source : Don Juan (canto III, st.86)
“The isles of Greece, the isles of Greece! Where burning Sappho loved and sung.
Where grew the arts of war and peace, Where Delos rose, and Phoebus sprung!
Eternal summer gilds them yet, But all, except their sun, is set.”
