The Sibyl rock from the Delphi oracle

The rock from which the Sibyl gave oracles. The rock is between the treasury of Sicyon and the stoa of the Athenians upon the sacred way which leads up to the temple of Apollo in the archaeological area of Delphi. As Pausanias says at Phocis "there is a rock which extrudes from the ground. The Delphians say that after she stood above this rock, a woman named Herophile chanted her oracles, a woman who was known as a "Sibyl".
