At one point, we were allowed to wonder about the ruins to see how everything was and even exam where the held sporting exams.

We also spent part of ...

She became very famous and for centuries, Greeks trekked up the mountain to ask her questions and advice. Naturally they were supposed to give an offering in return. Can you imagine how many offerings there were.....hundreds...and where to put them all? That is why all these smaller temples ...
