Oracles were called “Frenzied women from whose lips the god speaks” and were found all over the world in many different cultures. Delphi is certainly the most famous, but there were also Oracles at Dodona, Trophonius and Menestheus. It is theorized that Oracles had their visions because of gases which combined with other materials the Oracles had with them. They were often depicted holding a laurel sprig in one hand and a bowl with liquid in the other.
