20 THE ORACLE OF DELPHI Delphi was an ancient Greek town where there was the most important oracle of the ancient world. The town is mentioned from the Homeric Ages known as Pytho. In the beginning of the historic ages it was a town of the ancient Phocis but later it became the panhellenic centre and a sacred town of the ancient Greeks. It was also the centre of the Delphic Amphictiony. Delphi held an important position until the end of the 4 th century A.D. when the oracle closed by the decree of the emperor Theodosius I. In the next centuries the town declined and it was abandoned during the period of the slavic invasion.
