21 Chapter 2 Chasma gês Delphic pneuma and the cult of Asklepios Richard M Economakis When entertaining the notion of pneuma, that ambiguous Greek word meaning physical breath or divine Spirit, one is led reflexively to ponder that most ancient and mysterious essence that was at once material and godly, the Delphic pneuma, which inspired the priestess Pythia in delivering the god Apollo’s prophecies at his great oracular temple on the foothills of Mount Parnassus. While often deliberately vague (in some instances famously),1 the mantic pronouncements that issued from the shrine of “far-shooting Phoebus” were interpreted as ultimate, god-given truth.

The tripod was originally a simple cooking utensil, useful for boiling meats; it became a prize at early games, probably in connection with the cult of Apollo. Its use as a seat at Delphi is unusual, and the possible reasons are much debated. The Pythagoreans believed that the three legs symbolized the past, present and future, which gave the tripod mantic qualities.
