Greece was the center of ancient human civilization. There was a mysterious temple in Greece, which was famous for correct predictions regarding future. Great Rulers like Alexander, Nero, and Croesus as also famous poets like Homer went there to know their future.
Pythia was an ugly priestess of a temple. Alexander once stood face to face with the priestess."Priestess, tell me what the future holds for me.” thundered the great warrior.
“Pythia is not anybody’s slave. You are standing in the temple of Apollo. You are just an ordinary human being. Go away.” replied Pythia.
Alexander flew into a rage and held Pythia by her arm, nearly dragging her and said, “There can be no limitation of time for Alexander. Do not make me angrier otherwise it shall cause chaos Go into the temple to meditate and tell me how I shall fare in the future.”
Pythia was nearly out of breath. She controlled herself and wrung herself free. “If you insist on knowing the listen,” she said, “You will be acclaimed as the conqueror of the world. But, you shall die in a foreign country in a pitiable condition. You are not to live long, but even your enemies will utter your name with profound respect.”
Soon after that Alexander died at an age of thirty three. He died in a foreign land due to high fever caused by infected injuries. Pythia had correctly foretold his future. This incident tells us that there were fortune tellers in ancient Greece even 356 years before the birth of Christ.
