Pythia was the oracle at Apollo’s temple in Delphi in ancient Greece. She was The Pythia, known as the Oracle of Delphi, and was celebrated as the priestess of the Temple of Apollo. One of the fundamental requirements for the Pythia position was that the woman serving as the Pythia, would be at least 50 years of age. Given that the Delphi oracle was the most authoritative oracle among the Greeks, she was a powerful woman in the classical world.
