"Pray to the Winds. They will prove to be mighty allies of Greece." (Macaulay, G. C. "Section on Delphi and the Pythian oracle from Herodotus Book VII 140-3)
--------------------------------------------------------------------
"We are in 480 BC, year of the second Persian invasion of Greece led by Xerxes. Pythia during this entire period had arguably adopted a very defeatist and alarmist attitude – one could say for good reason given the size of Xerxes army. Yet in her statement she chose to leave some room for the possibility of victory for the Greeks. The statement above corresponds to Pythia's answer when asked by the Delphians of what could be done to defeat the Persians."
