KIRRA (Ancient city) PARNASSOS
After the people of Cirrha had been besieged for a long time because they had attempted to plunder the oracle (Delphi. About 590 B.C.), some of the Greeks returned to their native cities, but others of them inquired of the Pythian priestess and received the following response:
Ye shall not seize and lay in ruins the tower
Of yonder city, before the plashing wave
Of dark-eyed Amphitrite inundates
My sacred precinct, here on these holy cliffs.
Port of Delphi, war of Amphictyons against.
