Delphi was the site of the Delphic oracle, the most important oracle in the classical Greek world.  It was also a major site for the worship of the god Apollo.  His sacred precinct in Delphi was a Pan-Hellenic sanctuary, where every four years from 586 BC athletes from all over the Greek world competed in the Pythian Games, one of the precursors to the Modern Olympics.  The current temple ruins date from 4th BC.  Additionally, many Greek city states retained their treasuries here.  Delphi was revered throughout the Greek world as the site of the omphalos stone, the centre of the earth and the universe.  After the battle of Plataea, the Greek cities extinguished their fires and brought new fire from the Delphi.
