In the ancient world, if you had a problem or a question, you visited the Delphi Oracle. For centuries, not just Greeks trekked up the mountain to visit the Oracle who usually gave a very cryptic answer. Naturally, you were expected to make an offering. Around the temple that held the Oracle, the city-states of the ancient world built "treasuries" to hold these offerings and erected monuments. In an effort to show their city-state's superiority, they embellished these buildings with the finest art. Eventually, a theatre and even a stadium were added. Today, the hillside where the Oracle spoke is covered with ruins of these buildings. Alongside is a museum that holds the many precious treasures found at the site including the finest gold and ivory offerings, sculpted friezes depicting Greek legends, and the world famous bronze statue title The Charioteer.
