Oracle of Delphi

Ancient Greece was a world dominated by men. For centuries, however, all men from servants and soldiers, to the emperor himself sought the advice of one person, a woman, The Oracle of Delphi.

Consult the oracle and she will share her secrets, reveal the mysteries of the universe, and make predictions. Say, "Alexa, consult The Oracle."
