Pythia
The PYTHIA (/ˈpɪθiə/ , Ancient Greek : Πῡθίᾱ ), was the name of the High Priestess of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi who also served as the oracle, commonly known as the ORACLE OF DELPHI. The name _Pythia_ is derived from Pytho, which in myth was the original name of Delphi. In etymology the Greeks derived this place name from the verb, πύθειν (_púthein_) "to rot", which refers to the sickly sweet smell of the decomposition of the body of the monstrous Python after she was slain by Apollo. Pythia was the House of Snakes. The Pythia was established at the latest in the 8th century BC, and was widely credited for her prophecies inspired by being filled by the spirit of the god (or enthusiasmos ), in this case Apollo . The Pythian priestess emerged pre-eminent by the end of 7th century BC and would continue to be consulted until the 4th century AD

John Fahey (musician)
JOHN ALOYSIUS FAHEY (February 28, 1939 – February 22, 2001) was an American fingerstyle guitarist and composer who played the steel-string acoustic guitar as a solo instrument. His style has been greatly influential and has been described as the foundation of American Primitive Guitar , a term borrowed from painting and referring mainly to the self-taught nature of the music and its minimalist style. Fahey borrowed from the folk and blues traditions in American roots music, having compiled many forgotten early recordings in these genres. He would later incorporate classical, Portuguese, Brazilian, and Indian music into his œuvre. He spent many of his later years in poverty and poor health, but enjoyed a minor career resurgence with a turn towards the more explicitly avant-garde , and created a series of abstract paintings during the last years of his life. He died in 2001 from complications from heart surgery
